The Liverpool defender has undergone surgery on an ankle problem, initially sustained on global duty against Holland in March, which will rule him out of the Champions League final at the end of the month then the World Cup.

In March, Gomez sustained an ankle injury during England's friendly with the Netherlands and it led to the 20-year-old missing a month of action.

"Been a tough few weeks trying everything possible to be available on the pitch to help the team".

Despite failing to score in his last three games, the Egyptian remains a threat to any team and is expected to give Real Madrid defenders a hard time in the final match. Thank you for all the support over the course of the season.

But the 2015 signing from Charlton suffered a recurrence of the problem against the Potters and further scans showed he needed surgery, which will rule him out of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26.

The Times' man on Merseyside Paul Joyce confirmed that Gomez will now have surgery on the injury and miss Liverpool's remaining two matches of the season.

Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also miss the World Cup after sustaining a knee injury, while Adam Lallana is also on the treatment table with a hamstring problem.
