Granit Xhaka escapes major injury ahead of the World Cup

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has escaped a serious knee injury during a training session with Switzerland. The 25-year-old recently suffered a nasty collision with compatriot Valon Behrami in training and reports thereafter suggested that he could miss his country’s campaign at the summer World Cup.

However, fortunately for him, the injury appears only a minor one and the Swiss team doctor has now confirmed that he should return to normal duties at the World Cup, he said: “I'm very relieved. We could already see that the ligaments were intact, but we wanted to play it safe, also with regard to the meniscus. We are very relieved that it is only a painful bone bruise - and very grateful that we were able to do an MRI scan late in the evening.”
