Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny looks set to miss the World Cup after the France worldwide suffered an Achilles injury during Thursday's Europa League semi-final defeat by Atletico Madrid.

Needing to score following a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Arsenal's task was made more hard when Laurent Koscielny was forced to leave the pitch with an Achilles tendon injury, which could put the Frenchman's place in the World Cup finals in danger.

Arsene Wenger's time at Arsenal is over.

Aaron Ramsey missed a second-half sitter and Granit Xhaka pulled a diving save out of Jan Oblak before Griezmann's close-range effort was blocked.

Arsenal came up short against an organised Atletico defence that produced its 12th clean sheet at the Wanda Metropolitano by denying the Premier League side's attempts to cancel out Diego Costa's first-half victor.

Arsenal's arch nemesis Diego Costa inflicted yet more pain on the club as it was his goal that saw the Gunners crash out of the Europa League.

Simeone said he was expecting a hard test in the final in Lyon on May 16, against a Marseille team who battled through in extra-time at Red Bull Salzburg in Thursday's other semifinal.

Embassy, Colonel Joseph Emanuel Hall, ran a red light on a main Islamabad road and collided with a motorcycle carrying two people. Following the incident, Ausburn locked himself in his vehicle and later he let the police officials inside the auto .

He added: "When you go out of the competition it is very hard to take".

"I'm the visible head of a group who have worked here in an extraordinary way for six years, many people working every day so things go in a positive way", Simeone said. "The unsafe situations we created were there but we missed something in both boxes", he said.

Atletico will be playing its fourth European final under Simeone.

Wenger, in his 250th UEFA game as a club coach, announced two weeks ago he was standing down after almost 22 years with the London team. The game can be very cruel; sometimes it is very nice.

Atletico's star striker Diego Costa will be fit and his former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard believes his return will be a key factor.

The Frenchman said he still rued his team's profligacy in the 1-1 first-leg draw at the Emirates Stadium after Atletico had been reduced to 10 men early in the game when Sime Vrsjalko was sent off.

With the tie level on aggregate, the match went to extra time and neither side could find an opening until a Dimitri Payet corner found Portuguese defender Rolando with four minutes left. "I'm frustrated as well because when you go out of the competition like we did, it's very hard to take".
