With David Beckham injured and out of this year's World Cup, more bad news is the last thing the England team need.
Star striker Wayne Rooney has brought about a fresh dose of anxiety for the nation, however, after picking up an injury in Germany on Tuesday.
The Manchester United player collapsed in pain following a 2-1 defeat against Bayern Munich, leaving the country concerned about his World Cup chances.
Due to have a scan on his injured ankle as soon as he touches down in England this afternoon, Wayne will find out whether or not he can still take part in this summer's tournament.
It's hoped the injury is nothing more than a badly bruised foot.
If, however, the problem turns out to be more serious and the new dad has suffered a sprained ankle, he could be ruled out of play for some time.
