West Ham have confirmed that winger Robert Snodgrass has picked up a calf injury following his withdrawal from the Scotland squad.
The 32-year-old started the humbling 4-0 defeat against Russia on Thursday night but was unable to take part as Steve Clarke’s side ran out 6-0 winners over minnows San Marino yesterday afternoon.
Snodgrass has been a bit-part player at club level this season with manager Manuel Pellegrini having started him just once in the Premier League.
The Scottish international was part of the side that lost 4-0 against League One side Oxford United in the Carabao Cup last month, and he has been an unused substitute in both games since that embarrassing loss.
Snodgrass is currently touch and go to be fit for the bench when the Hammers face Everton in their next league match on Saturday afternoon.
West Ham currently have four other players sidelined with Aaron Cresswell (knock), Lukasz Fabianski (hip), Michail Antonio (hamstring) and Winston Reid (fitness) all currently on the treatment table.
