Liverpool's Joe Gomez out of Champions League final, World Cup

Milorad Mazic has been announced as the referee to take charge of Real Madrid vs Liverpool Uefa Champions League final

After hurting his ankle in March, he returned for Liverpool against West Brom on 21 April, and played against Stoke a week later, but will now miss the match on 26 May.

However, the club have stated that Gomez will be ready for the start of Liverpool's pre-season training schedule in July following a rehabilitation period.

Gomez is also out of England's World Cup campaign, which begins on 18 June against Tunisia.

He has made 31 appearances for Liverpool this season, having shared right-back responsibilities with Trent Alexander-Arnold due to Nathaniel Clyne's long-term injury. He managed just 10 minutes against Netherlands before sustaining his original injury.

Gareth Southgate is due to name his World Cup squad shortly after the final weekend of the Premier League season and former Charlton defender Gomez was nearly certain to be included, given his excellent form and versatility.

The Reds suffered a blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four this season when they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon to leave the Merseyside outfit needing the three points against Brighton to guarantee their spot in the Champions League next term. Spurs face Newcastle on Wednesday, while the Blues take on Huddersfield Town. This summer Mažić will travel to Russian Federation as part of the officiating team for the World Cup on the back of his experience in the 2014 edition in Brazil and in the 2016 European Championships in France.

Both Joel Matip and Emre Can are also struggling and could miss the climax of the season.
