Irons to sue FA

West Ham are set to sue the Football Association following reports that Roy Hodgsons medical team gave a pain killing injection to Stewart Downing allowing him to compete in the friendly against Scotland last week.

Downing picked up a knock to his ankle during an England training session prior to their Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia last Saturday. Downing was forced to sit out the match, however Hodgson gave the order for an injection to Downings ankle allowing him to play a friendly match against rivals Scotland.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is said to be fuming with Hodgson, and the club are now to take legal action against the FA.

Downing has returned from International duty unfit, and was forced to miss the defeat at Everton on Saturday.
