Egypt midfielder Elneny injured playing for Arsenal

LONDON (AP) Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has been carried off on a stretcher during Sunday's Premier League game against West Ham, less than two months before he is due at the World Cup with Egypt.

Elneny was treated on the pitch in north London after injuring an ankle in a challenge with Mark Noble just before halftime.

Egypt has qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and opens its Group A campaign on June 15 against Uruguay.

Arsenal will have more immediate concerns about Elneny's fitness with the first leg of its Europa League semifinal against Atletico Madrid on Thursday.
