Diogo Jota injury
Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has been ruled out of Portugal's entire World Cup campaign with a calf injury.

The 25-year-old picked up the injury in the second half of Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday.

“It is not good news about Jota” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made the remarks during a press conference ahead of the Merseyside club’s Premier League match with West Ham.

“He will miss the World Cup. It is a pretty serious injury. Now the recovery starts. It is very sad news for us and for Portugal as well”.

“The first diagnosis was pretty clear and it’s very sad news for us”.

“We have to look at player welfare, we always do and if we can consider things lineup-wise, we will. “It’s an intense period, we’re used to it but full energy is required again against West Ham”.

Jota wrote on Twitter: “After such a good night at Anfield mine ended in the worst way! In the last minute one of my dreams collapsed”.

“I will be one more supporting from the outside, club and country, and fighting to be back as soon as possible”.

“You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

The 25-year-old joins fellow forward Luis Diaz on the sidelines. Luis Diaz suffered a knee injury in the Liverpool’s 3 – 2 loss to Arsenal in the previous weekend.

Liverpool host West Ham in the league on Wednesday, before travelling to play Nottingham Forest in the weekend.
