The 27-year-old, playing in her debut World Cup, limped out of the action this afternoon, and it has been announced that she suffered a ruptured Achilles.
England coach Tracey Neville said:
“Layla is an amazing addition to our team and we are so disappointed that she won’t be joining us on court for the rest of this tournament.
“It is devastating that her journey in this World Cup is over but myself and all of the Roses are by her side supporting her through this time. We will do everything we can to ensure she is back playing again soon.”
