Loads of Sunderland fans have been reacting to an update from the Northern Ireland squad, as Will Grigg is struggling with an ankle injury.
Grigg is expected to miss both of Northern Ireland’s Euro 2020 qualifiers during this international break – the green and white army take on Estonia on Thursday evening before a clash with Belarus on Sunday.
According to various reports, the 27 year-old is suffering from an ankle problem and will return to Wearside for treatment.

“Will’s ankle is an ongoing problem that he’s had for some time,” said manager Michael O’Neill.
Unsurprisingly, Sunderland fans are now speculating over the extent of the injury, with plenty hoping it’s just a precaution ahead of the Checkatrade Trophy final, while others fret over the possibility of a more serious issue.
The ex-Wigan ace has bagged three goals and two assists already in his short time as a Black Cat, and if his ankle problem causes him to miss time in April it would be devastating for the club’s promotion hopes.

To be fair after a bit of time out with an ankle injury he’s had a good run of games for us so a fortnight off now is perfect for him, assuming he’s back training next week.

He rolled it on Saturday after Morgan’s trying to follow up Morgan’s chance. Itll be totally fine just resting for the final
