With Wolverhampton Wanderers going into the October international break in great confidence following Adama Traore’s late show last weekend against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side, where we came out as 2-0 victors, on Tuesday, the club confirmed that four players had now withdrawn from their countries squad’s over the next fortnight with injury.
The four players who have withdrawn from international duty are Romain Saiss, Morgan Gibbs-White, Pedro Neto and Diogo Jota, but as the update was published on the Official Website, head of medical, Phil Hayward, explained that all four only had minor injuries, so there’s every reason for confidence that they will quickly come back into head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s thoughts when proper football returns later this month.
The news shouldn’t be a great surprise really, Jota and Neto missed out on our trip to the Etihad and Saiss was substituted 13 minutes in with a presumed hamstring problem on Sunday and Gibbs-White remained on the bench.
“Romain was taken off during Sunday’s game at Manchester City with a hamstring problem. The injury is not thought to be too serious, but it is not clear at this stage how long he will be out for. Diogo has a small problem with his foot but is responding well to treatment. Pedro is suffering with some heel bruising which should settle over the next couple of weeks. Morgan has withdrawn from international duty with England under-21s due to a back issue and, although the problem isn’t serious, he’ll be monitored over the next week by the staff.”
Hopefully, they clear up over the fortnight break and we gain no fresh issues as the international games tick by.
