Arsenal and Sweden’s Freddie Ljungberg suffered a calf injury in Sweden’s 2-0 win over Spain.

The seriousness of the injury is not yet known but it has been claimed he is ‘highly doubtful’ for Sweden’s next qualifier on Wednesday.

I’ve not seen the game but apparently Freddie limped off in the second half.

If the winger is not fit to play for his country he will return to his club to continue with treatment in hope he will be fit to face Watford next Saturday.

While Ljungberg is one of our most experienced players, infact the longest serving current player, his position is one that we have fairly well covered and while it’s never nice to have an injured player, his absence would not be the end of the world.
