Leg fracture for Wijnaldum 3 months before World Cup

ROME (AP) — Netherlands midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum’s participation at the World Cup appears in doubt after he fractured the tibia in his right leg on Sunday.

Serie A club Roma said Wijnaldum suffered the injury in training and that “the player will undergo further assessments in the coming days.”

The 31-year-old Wijnaldum joined Roma on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in the offseason. He previously played for Liverpool.

Wijnaldum has made more than 80 appearances for the Netherlands.

The World Cup in Qatar starts on Nov. 20 and the final is set for Dec. 18.
