    LONDON, England – Only days after captaining Costa Rica to a 1-1 draw at Jamaica and sealing a berth in the World Cup finals next year, Fulham’s Bryan Ruiz suffered an left-ankle injury against West Bromwich on Saturday.

    In the 90th minute of the English Premier League encounter that ended 1-1, he fell uneasily after an aerial clash and was removed from the field.

    “Ruiz’s injury looked quite serious,” said Fulham head coach Martin Jol.  “We’ll have to scan him and wait and see what the problem is.  I think it’s his ankle.”

    The 28-year-old attacking midfielder’s foot was put into a boot for precautionary reasons.

    In 58 career games for Costa Rica, Ruiz has scored 11 goals, including two during qualifying for Brazil 2014.
