Cape Town - Arsenal and Wales are expected to be without the services of Aaron Ramsey for the next month due to a hamstring injury suffered against Tottenham.
The midfielder was forced off the field during the first half of the Gunners' 1-1 draw with Spurs on Saturday, and the news coming out of the Arsenal camp has not been good.
As a result, Ramsey will miss this week's crunch Champions League clash with Galatasaray and another vitally important league fixture on Sunday, when Arsenal head to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.
The 22-year-old will then sit out Wales' Euro 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia-Hercegovina and Cyprus in Cardiff.
Next on the agenda for Arsenal after the international break is a visit from Hull and an away fixture against Sunderland in the league, with a trip to Anderlecht in the European Cup sandwiched in between.
There was some good news for Arsene Wenger though, with the knock suffered by Jack Wilshere not deemed serious enough to rule him out of the trip to the Blues.
