England physio Gary Lewin suffers suspected dislocated ankle celebrating Daniel Sturridge equaliser v Italy
Gary Lewin has been a fixture at top flight football for many years.
He was often seen on the Arsenal bench, where he became a well-known and respected physio, before taking over at England from 1996.
Lewin was credited with saving footballers from much more serious injuries, including Eduardo da Silva during his time at Arsenal.
After England equalised against Italy, the camera panned to the England bench where there were a number of people surrounding a prone Gary Lewin on the ground.
Initial reports at half-time suggest Lewin has a suspected dislocated ankle.
