Dan Clark picked up an ankle injury in the loss, though it remains unclear how severe it is, Joel Freeland sustained a knee injury and has been flown back to the UK for tests, whilst Mike Lenzly has suffered a suspected torn calf muscle during GB’s loss to USA in Manchester on Thursday.
The injuries come as a severe blow to GB’s Olympic preparation, and could result in call ups for previously cut players. Ian Whittell is reporting the British Olympic Association have confirmed to GB they can bring in players outside the 13 they named at the start of July (Ogo Adegboye was the first reserve), should they need to.
GB will now play Belgium this afternoon in their final warm-up before the Olympics begin next Sunday.
