Harry Maguire will be out for nearly two weeks, another blow for defenders.
The Manchester United captain, 29, suffered a thigh injury as England drew 3–3 with Germany.
On Monday, he played 90 minutes at Wembley despite being injured, before being seen limping out of the stadium.
Due to the severity of his leg injury, Maguire will be out for some time.
United face rivals Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday before traveling to Everton for Europa League side Omonia on 9 October.
In any case, Maguire has been left out of the Red Devils’ recent starting line-up, with Eric Tenhag favoring the center-back duo of ‘leader’ Rafael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.
However, Maguire, who is busy training for the World Cup, is likely to have played against Omonia in Cyprus.
The England defender had a difficult night.
He was booed by the home crowd before kick-off and then got involved in two goals as Germany extended their lead to 2–0.
To make matters worse, he ended up plagued with muscle problems in the second half.
Captain Harry Kane has dealt with the injury while supporting his teammates.
Kane said, “Personal mistake, he will do a fist pump.
“But we are a team and we support each other. ‘They have learned from it, they have moved on and they have been great for us every time they put on the England shirt.
“H had a pretty bad injury at the end, but he played another five or ten minutes mostly on one leg. His character is great.
Maguire, who was spotted limping off after a 3–3 draw in the Nations League, took to social media to apologize for the “mistake”.
Despite his performance, Maguire has the endorsement of Gary Neville, who advised him to seek psychological help from an outside expert.
Neville said, “When he lost his confidence, he went to see a psychologist to help him with that.”
He went to see the chief physician of “Manchester United”. That was the reason why he went to see a psychiatrist. Sometimes we need outside help.
“Harry is having a hard time. Poor thing he did.
“But he’s a solid character and he has a good family at Manchester United and people around him who want to help him.
“Don’t forget that it’s a difficult time for Harry, but all he can do is show up, do his best and don’t give up.”
