Rodriguez (knee) led Southampton with 15 goals despite suffering a season-ending torn ACL in April.

Rodriguez also contributed three assists and averaged a team-high 3.1 shot attempts across his 33 appearances. Further, his 15 goals ranked ninth in the Premiership this season. At 24 years old, Rodriguez embodies one of England's most promising young attackers, but his untimely injury tragically prevented him from World Cup consideration and will likely force him to miss the first month or so of the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Rodriguez suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's match at Manchester City, and he is expected to miss the next six months.

A terrible injury at a terrible time, as Rodriguez will not only miss the rest of the Premier League season, but also the World Cup. It's been a remarkable season for Rodriguez, whose 15 goals trail only Luis Suarez (29), Daniel Sturridge (20), and Yaya Toure (18) this year.

The immediate concern was that Rodriguez seriously injured his knee, and if there is any significant ligament damage, he could easily miss the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup.
