Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez will miss the World Cup with a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament that will rule him out until October. The 24-year-old had hoped to be part of the England squad in Brazil, after winning his first cap last year. But he will now have surgery to repair the injury sustained in the defeat at Manchester City on Saturday. “Everything will be done to deliver a speedy recovery,” said Southampton director Les Reed. “Jay is naturally disappointed, but is determined to get back playing for Saints as soon as possible. “He has asked us to pass on his gratitude to everybody who has shown him their concern and sympathy during the 48 or so hours since his injury.” The former Burnley striker made his first, and so far only, senior England appearance in a friendly against Chile last November.
