The 24-year-old was injured after a heavy fall at the Laugardalsvvllur national stadium early in the second half in Iceland's 4-2 defeat to Slovenia on Friday and was rushed to hospital.

If it turns out that Gunnarsson suffered a dislocated shoulder it could leave one of the Bluebirds' key men facing a battle to be fit for the start of the new Premier League season.

Cardiff's head of performance Richard Collinge told the club's official website: "Aron is currently undergoing a series of tests and investigations to determine the extent of his shoulder injury, from which we will be able to implement a management and recovery schedule.

"Any injury is frustrating for a player, but we will give Aron the best possible support to enable a swift return to action."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
