Tomas Rosicky Injury: Updates on Arsenal Midfielder's Thigh
Arsenal star Tomas Rosicky suffered an injury to his right thigh while playing for the Czech Republic national team on Tuesday in a 2014 World Cup qualifying match against Italy, according to Football Italia on Twitter:
Rosicky, who is doing his best to help the Czech Republic earn a berth in next summer's World Cup in Brazil, was injured during the first half of action at Juventus Stadium.
The injury news has to come as a scare for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal supporters everywhere. After all, it's been less than 14 months since Rosicky underwent surgery to repair an injured Achilles tendon suffered at Euro 2012. After missing the start of the 2012-13 campaign, Rosicky struggled to make a notable impact for the Gunners, finishing the year with just two goals and two assists in 10 Premier League outings.
So far in 2013-14, Rosicky has appeared in all three of the club's Premier League matches. He has yet to score or assist but boasts an average match rating of 6.91, according to WhoScored.com.
Rosicky has made over 90 appearances on the international stage for the Czech Republic since 2000, scoring 21 goals over that time. The veteran found the back of the net most recently in the Czech squad's stunning 2-1 loss to Armenia on Friday in Prague.
The 32-year-old attacking midfielder is currently in his eighth season with Arsenal, who acquired him from Borussia Dortmund in May 2006. Last year, the Czech international signed a two-year extension with the club.
Rosicky has scored 22 goals and recorded 24 assists in just over 180 career appearances with the Gunners in all competitions.
