Watford defender Nyron Nosworthy suffers reported ruptured Achilles on World Cup duty for Jamaica
Watford’s defensive options for the potential promotion run-in have suffered a big blow after Nyron Nosworthy was injured on World Cup duty for Jamaica.
Although the extent of the defender’s injury is unlikely to be confirmed by the Hornets before Monday at the earliest, several sources in the country are reporting the centre-half sustained a ruptured Achilles that will require surgery and keep him out for several months.
Nosworthy sustained the injury just before half-time in the 1-1 draw at home to Panama, while Lloyd Doyley was denied the chance to make his international debut for the Reggae Boyz as he was an unused substitute.
The result made it two draws out of two for Jamaica, leaving them second bottom of the North, Central America and Caribbean qualification group.
Meanwhile, Matej Vydra played the full 90 minutes as the Czech Republic were beaten 3-0 at home by Denmark, meaning they drop to fourth in Group B and trail leaders Italy by five points.
