With the World Cup just around the corner, it looks like there will already be a few key players missing through injury. England’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a medial knee ligament injury in their warm up match against Ecuador and Franck Ribery has succumbed to a lower back injury in one of France’s training sessions. Unfortunately for them it looks like Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the start of the tournament and Ribery will miss out all together.

In light of this, AposTherapy® wanted to review common football injuries that occur and have created a graphic showing the most common injuries at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
