WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) — West Bromwich Albion striker Daryl Dike will be sidelined for at least two months after a scan confirmed a torn thigh muscle. The injury is a blow to the 22-year-old Oklahoman’s hopes of earning a roster spot with the United States at the World Cup, which starts November 20th.
West Brom manager Steve Bruce in his media conference ahead of Saturday’s game against Blackburn in the second-tier Championship said Dike will be out “at least a couple of months.”
Dike missed West Brom’s 1-1 draw with Watford on Monday after he had picked up the thigh injury in training on Sunday.
