Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny has become the second Arsenal man to have injured himself amidst the international break. The 29-year-old has reportedly been sidelined after picking up a muscular problem during training.

According to the EFA, Arsenal was informed of the defensive midfielder’s injury by the national team’s medical staff. He will have to miss out on the club’s next game scheduled for Saturday against Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium.

Earlier, Bosnia’s Sead Kolašinac picked up a gruesome injury in a game against France.

Frenchman Jules Koundé was red-carded for a brutal foul in the latest France-Bosnia clash which forced Kolašinac to leave the game midway. After the game, Bosnia and Herzegovina coach Ivaylo Petev indicated that the player might have to remain on the sidelines for a while.

“I talked to him, he doesn’t look very well,” the national team manager said.

This could mean for Mikel Arteta’s unit since Granit Xhaka is already out of the squad as well. On Wednesday, Xhaka tested positive for the coronavirus. It was later revealed that he had never been vaccinated for the virus.

After Xhaka withdrew from the Greece match, Swiss FA head of communications Adrian Arnold confirmed: “He’s a player who isn’t vaccinated. We left this up to each player, it’s a personal decision of each player – just like any other person in Switzerland.”
