On Sunday, Newcastle United made it official: Tim Krul will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL while on international duty.
Krul was injured after landing awkwardly in the 80th minute of the Netherlands' 2-1 win over Kazakstan. The Dutch manager, Danny Blind believed it the injury was caused by artificial turf.
Krul sent this message out via Twitter:

Newcastle has called back Freddie Woodman from his loan at Crawley Town. It is likely that Rob Elliot will get the start on Sunday when the Magpies host Norwich City.
