Social media was alight like a soggy firework yesterday as stories of Lyle Taylor being injured ripped through us. There was even photos taken of him and his blonde locks struggling on crutches at Ebbsfleet train station.
Taylor captained and played the full 90 minutes in Montserrat’s 2-1 win over the Dominican Republic on Saturday, but he was missing from their draw last night against St Lucia. Taylor obviously travelled home before that game. The journey back from Montserrat includes either a boat or an eight-seater light aircraft back to Antigua before boarding a flight to London. That must have been a painful journey.
