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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
