Daryl Dike has hurt his Achilles, which could keep him out for up to nine months.

West Brom said on Tuesday that US international Daryl Dike's Achilles injury could keep him out for up to nine months.

On Saturday, when West Brom beat Stoke 2-1, the goal scorer had to be taken off on a bed and given an oxygen mask.

A club report said, "Albion striker Daryl Dike will be out for six to nine months after hurting his Achilles tendon against Stoke City on Saturday."

"Since then, a scan has shown that the US international needs surgery to fix a full tear in his right Achilles. After that, he will start his recovery.

"Albion's medical and sports science teams will give Dike all the help he needs to get back to full fitness later this year."

This season, Dike scored seven goals for West Brom in 23 Championship games. This put him back in the running for the USMNT.

Dike, who is 22 years old, didn't play for the USMNT against Mexico on Wednesday because the game was played outside of a FIFA international slot and almost all of the players were from the United States.

Dike said on social media, "I can't put into words how I feel right now." "I'm so sad about this accident because nothing I do seems to work right now.

On January 22 against Peterborough, in his first game, he hurt his leg and had to miss the rest of the season.

He played for the U.S. national team for the first time since July 2021 last month. He was on the team that played Grenada and El Salvador in the CONCACAF Nations League.
