MANCHESTER, England (AP) - England national defender Phil Jones was hospitalized with a left shoulder injury sustained in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Hull in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old Jones was injured in an aerial collision with Hull defender Maynor Figueroa at a corner in the first half of Tuesday night’s match at Old Trafford.

He left the field wincing with pain and was taken to a hospital.

Interim United manager Ryan Giggs says “just by his reaction, he knew he had done something and he wanted to come off. Usually, as a player, you know that something is not great when you do that.”

Jones has made nine appearances for England and was expected to be included in the Three Lions’ 23-man World Cup roster to be announced May 12.
