The England international suffered the injury against Spain last night.

England suffered at the hands of Spain last night, losing 2-0 thanks to goals from Mario Gaspar and Santi Cazorla.

It was a poor night for many players - with Adam Lallana, Fabian Delph and Kyle Walker all being singled out by some fans.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick also had a poor game and it certainly did not end well for him. He suffered a nasty looking ankle injury late in the game and it certainly seems as though Louis van Gaal might have to do without his vice-captain for a while.

He was pictured after the game having a chat with his former Manchester United team-mate Gerard Pique and he was certainly in a bad way, as you can see from this picture (courtesy of UnitedTweets_)

The midfielder has played in 14 games for United this season and whilst many doubt his impact for the club he has only been on the losing side twice for the club this season.

However it certainly appears as though Manchester United might have to do without him for a little while after this injury.
