MANAUS, Brazil (AP) — England's physiotherapist required treatment himself after being injured while celebrating a goal during Saturday's World Cup game against Italy.

Gary Lewin dislocated an ankle after Daniel Sturridge equalized for England during the first half in Manaus as the England backroom staff celebrated on the bench.

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.
