World Cup 2014

De Gea Crocked

David de Gea looks set to miss the rest of the group stages of the World Cup after sustaining an injury during Spain’s training session ahead of their Group B clash against Chile on Wednesday.

The Manchester United shot-stopper was expected to replace Iker Casillas after the Real Madrid goalkeeper had a nightmare in goal during the 5-1 defeat to the Netherland, until Spain confirmed the injury.

"After undergoing tests, it was decided that David de Gea would not take part in the team's afternoon training session owing to muscle discomfort in the gluteal region,” read an official statement by the RFEF (the Royal Spanish Football Federation).

"The Spanish national team's medical services will evaluate day-by-day the goalkeeper's recovery to determine his reincorporation into the group."

The World Cup defending champions end of their Group B fixtures against Australia.
