Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, Press Association Sport understands.
The 18-year-old was forced from the field after injuring his right knee in the 80th minute of England Under-21s' 3-0 victory against Kazakhstan on Tuesday night.
Young Lions boss Gareth Southgate moved to ease fears over the extent of Gomez's injury after the game, but Liverpool will hold a press conference on Thursday where they are expected to confirm that the 18-year-old left-back's season is over.
''It seems to be okay, we were a bit concerned at first but we are hopeful it's nothing too serious,'' Southgate said.
