The only bright spark would be if it means he’s spared going off for the international break and can recover and preserve his energy for us.Well if we didn’t all already know how critical this guy is, we just saw a demonstration!
Please please please be a minor injury!
Looked like a simple twist to me. We have the international break coming up. If there was a best time for this to happen - this was itDesperately bad news for Christian following his international breakthrough and MOM performance against England. Worse still news for us if the injury is even more long-term than this.

My first thought was that or a stress fracture. I was willing them to take him off as trying to run it off can only have caused more damage. He isn't the sort of player to roll around in agony for no reason and it clearly wasn't a knock.
That's what I saw too, just landed with both feet together, didn't appear any impact from the Preston player, just a jarred landing. Let's hope it's a bit of soft tissue damage, as opposed to a stress fracture or something, it's a worry that the most innocuous ones are often the worst....Just landed and jarred it, I don't think it even twistred. He did the same in pre season against Bournemouth last year didn't he and missed a few games.
It was of course tongue in cheek mentioning Watson again here - the incredulity of some on that thread at the mere idea of us signing someone 30+ was quite amusing but what it did do, was highlight the absence of a genuine 'back-up' for Norgaard should he get an injury. We have a few that could fill-in or be asked to step up but I don't think it's a position where you want to be blooding someone. Of all the positions I think it's one that lends itself for a more experienced player (like a Watto) to slot in until CN is back.
