Lewin was carried off on a stretcher after suffering the injury and the Football Association later confirmed that his tournament is over and that he will fly home to recover.

England’s equaliser came just moments after Claudio Marchisio had put Italy 1-0 up in the 35th minute of their World Cup Group D encounter.

Sturridge celebrated his close-range strike in his normal style, while Arsenal's physio Lewin jumped off the bench and injured himself in the process.

"That was a very sad moment for us," England boss Roy Hodgson said. "In celebrating the goal he jumped up, landed on a water bottle and dislocated his ankle.

"It was very painful. He was taken to hospital. The doctor set it, put it back in at the side of the field, but it's the end of  the World Cup for Gary."

The team's Twitter official feed, @england, confirmed the injury.

"England physio Gary Lewin was injured during celebrations for @england's goal," the post said. "He has dislocated his ankle. Get well soon Gary #3Lions"

Lewin's assistant Steve Kemp will take over as England's physio for the remainder of the tournament.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
