Lewin received treatment on the pitch before being carried off on a stretcher and taken to a Manaus hospital. He will now return to England.

England coach Roy Hodgson says "that was a very sad moment for us. In celebrating the goal he jumped up, landed on a water bottle and dislocated his ankle."

England, which lost 2-1, has another physiotherapist with the squad, Steve Kemp.
