USMNT international Daryl Dike suffered an injury on his West Bromwich Albion debut and it is now known how many weeks he will be sidelined, meaning his chance to start is slipping through his fingers.
The player, who was not called up by Greg Berhalter for the current World Cup Qualifiers, has already played matches with the U.S. national team and just a few weeks ago had made the move to return to European soccer.
And just today, which was his dream debut in the English Football League Championship, the second division of English soccer, he suffered a terrible injury that will keep him away from the fields and it is already known how long he will be out of action.
It is already known how many weeks Daryl Dike will be out of action due to his injury
Although the medical staff in charge has not yet made an assessment of the player's condition and it is expected that he will undergo a complete check-up this Monday, the team's coach expects to have him back in two weeks.
Team trainer Valerien Ismael said that, based on his experience, he expects Dike to be ready to return to the field for their February 9 match against Sheffield United.
Daryl Dike's injury was the only bad news for West Bromwich
In their Championship match today, West Bromwich Albion thrashed Peterborough United 3-0, so the injury to the USMNT international was the only bad news the team had to suffer today.
The "Throstles" team is in fifth place in the overall EFL Championship table and just today they got back to winning ways, after losing 3 of their last 5 matches and drawing 2 of them.
However, despite this record, they have had a good tournament and accumulated 45 points with today's victory, 12 points behind leaders Fulham, who have won 57 points from 27 games played. Therefore, the only concern for Valerien Ismael's team is for Dike to be ready for his upcoming meetings.
Daryl Dike, 21, traveled to Europe to meet again with coach Valerien Ismael after playing for him in 2021 as a loan player at Barnsley, also in the English Championship.
And his new adventure in English second-tier soccer was going well and today was his chance to make his debut with a goal for his new team.
