England injury curse extends to goalkeeping coach

England’s injury curse extends to the coaching staff at the

European Championship.

Roy Hodgson has already lost four members of the squad to

tournament-ending injuries and now goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence

is going home for surgery.

The former England goalkeeper snapped an Achilles’ tendon while

warming up the ‘keepers before England’s 1-1 draw against France on

Monday.

Hodgson says ”the hoodoo with injuries continues … he’s in an

awful lot of pain and has to go back to England for an

operation.”

Midfielders Gareth Barry and Frank Lampard, defender Gary

Cahill, and goalkeeper John Ruddy have been forced out of Euro 2012

with injuries.
