During a press conference on Friday, Hodgson provided this update.

Troost-Ekong could be out for “the foreseeable future,” effectively ruling him out of the 2022 World Cup playoff against Ghana, according to him.

“For Sarr, as well as Troost-Ekong, it’s a muscle strain.

“It’ll keep them both out of the equation for the time being, but I’m not sure how long that will be.”

“It’s not a minor thing, it’s not a knock,” the 74-year-old manager explained. “Both have muscle strains, which can take anywhere from a week to four weeks to recover from.”
