Glen Johnson faces the agony of being out of the rest of England’s World Cup qualifiers – including any play-off writes Alan Nixon of the Sunday People.

Liverpool fear their raiding right-back will be sidelined for around 10 weeks with the knee ligament injury he suffered against Manchester United last week.

Johnson’s bravery in a crunching tackle with Patrice Evra meant he missed the Moldova and Ukraine double header for England.

He was seen leaving Anfield on crutches after the United game and was wearing a medical boot.
