Ankle Injuries - Pressure on Ashley Cole to recover as Wayne Bridge withdraws from England squad
It may seem at the moment that a broken ankle is the least of Ashley Coles worries, however, with Wayne Bridge withdrawing from the England squad, Ashley Cole is now under pressure to recover from his broken ankle in time for the World Cup...

Ankle and Foot Injuries have been a big problem in recent years for the England team.
Here is a list of the ankle and foot injuries that have damaged Englands hopes of silverware. Plus advice from Pain Control on how to recover quickly from an Ankle injury.
Few football fans had heard of the injury until England skipper David Beckham broke his ankle in a shocking tackle by Deportivo La Coruna's Pedro Duscher two months before the finals in Japan and South Korea. To add insult to injury, Duscher just happened to be Argentine.
Beckham slept in oxygen tents and wore a surgical boot to make the plane to the Far East. He played in all five of England's matches, despite being far from match fit, and memorably scored the winning penalty in the group match against Argentina.
Two weeks after Beckham suffered his injury the metatarsal was all the rage again - although for some reason without the national hysteria.
Gary Neville, England's regular right-back, broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during Manchester United's Champions League semi-final against Bayer Leverkusen. He failed to make the finals.
Two weeks before the finals during a training session in Jeju, South Korea, Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy suffered broken foot number three and he was immediately ruled out of the tournament.

What is a Sprained Ankle
A sprained ankle, also known as an ankle sprain, twisted ankle, rolled ankle, ankle injury or ankle ligament injury, is a common medical condition where one or more of the ligaments of the ankle is torn or partially torn. The anterior talofibular ligament is one of the most commonly involved ligaments. Sprains to the lateral aspect of the ankle account for 85% of ankle sprains.
A sudden movement or twist often when the foot rolls in can overstretch the supporting ligaments, causing ligament tears and bleeding around the joint. This is known as a sprain. This is a common injury, it always occurs in activities that require running, jumping and change of direction (such as basketball, netball, football/soccer)
