Barkley suffers fracture.
Talented Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines. The club have confirmed Barkley suffered a double fracture of his leg during England Under-19s' 2-1 defeat to Belgium in Wednesday night's European Championship qualifier. Barkley, 16, was involved in a collision with team-mate Andre Wisdom in the first half that led to both players needing to be substituted. The full extent of Barkley's injury will now be assessed by the Everton medical team. Barkley has been on the first-team bench this season but is yet to make his professional debut.
