Arsenal announced the withdrawal of attacking midfielder Émile Smith Rowe on Thursday. The English international (22 years old, 3 caps), hampered by a pain in the groin which has only allowed him to play 47 minutes in four games since the start of the season, has been successfully operated on in recent days and has has already started his rehabilitation program.
If he could already hardly envisage it, the Gunner will definitely not play his first World Cup this year in Qatar. He is not expected to reappear on Premier League grounds for several months. The London club are hoping for a return to “full training in December”.
