On Koscielny's World Cup chances, he concluded: 'That depends on the scan, if he has a ruptured Achilles his chances are non-existent. "But we have to be cautious. I know it is a hard injury because you need to work every day on this.Every morning I have my treatment for my Achilles and I know I need to do this to the end of my career".

The French worldwide was carted off inside ten minutes of Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in the return leg of the Europa League semi-finals, which was also enough for the Colchoneros to send the Gunners out of the competitions.

Arsenal kept Atleti out until first half stoppage time, when former Chelsea striker opened the scoring on the night, giving Diego Simeone's men a 2-1 lead on aggregate.

"It looks like an Achilles rupture".

"It doesn't look very good, you can always hope that the scan will say something different but the first signs aren't very good", Wenger told a news conference.

The Arsenal captain was clearly in pain as he thumped the ground with his hand before eventually leaving the field on a stretcher to be replaced by Calum Chambers.
