The collarbone (clavicle) is a long, slender bone that runs from the breastbone to each shoulder. You can feel it at the top of your chest, just below your neck.

Groin and Hamstring Injuries

Groin and Hamstring Injuries

Shock results and below par performances aside, serious injuries have been conspicuous in their absence in this year’s World Cup, which can only be a positive. However, as we reach the knockout rounds, the intensity of competition will increase.
