Lewin jumped off the bench while cheering and injured himself in the process. He left the field on a stretcher after a short break in play.

"That was a very sad moment for us," England boss Roy Hodgson said. "In celebrating the goal he jumped up, landed on a water bottle and dislocated his ankle.

"It was very painful. He was taken to hospital. The doctor set it, put it back in at the side of the field, but it's the end of the World Cup for Gary."

QPR are one step closer to returning to the Premier League after they came from behind to beat Wigan and reach the Championship play-off final.

Wigan had taken a first-half lead through James Perch, but Charlie Austin's penalty levelled the game before his close-range strike in extra time sealed the win.

The west London club will have to overcome in-form Derby County - who beat Brighton 6-2 on aggregate in the other semi-final - on May 24 at Wembley if they are to return to the top-flight.

"I said the game would open up in the second half, and we'd have a chance," Pulis said.

"Then they get the two and, at 3-0, you're staring down the barrel. When we got the first goal, I thought we'd have a squeak.

"Then everything took off, it was amazing. When the second goal went in, it was just a matter of time until we got the third."
