Andros Townsend is out of the World Cup

In news that will shake society to its very core, Andros Townsend is out of the World Cup.  Bloody.  Hell.

From The BBC:
Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend is set to miss this summer's World Cup after being ruled out for up to 10 weeks with an ankle injury.
The 22-year-old came on for the last 12 minutes of Saturday's 1-0 win at Stoke, but left the stadium wearing a protective boot.
He will have surgery on Thursday after scans showed damaged ligaments.
I know it's hard to take on this sad, sad day and every man, woman and child alive expected Townsend to light up the streets of Brazil with his incredible skills.  Perhaps if we're lucky and we wait until the World Cup in Russia in 2018, we'll finally get a chance to see skills like 'sitting on the bench', 'kicking a ball from 30 yards' and 'running'.
