Roy Hodgson will be boosted by news that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be fit to take part in the World Cup despite damaging his medial ligament last week, Mirror reports.

Oxlade-Chamberlain looked likely to miss out on the tournament but somehow the Arsenal midfielder overcame his injury battle just in time.

The England boss announced the good news after his side drew 0-0 to Honduras in what was a very physical match where a few players could have received additional injuries.

“I think he will make the tournament without a shadow of a doubt. That’s good news,”

Steven Gerrard later commented on the physicality of their opponents approach to the friendly match as well as stated on one occasion that the referees should have done better at trying to prevent his team-mates from getting injured.

“I don’t understand the referee when the ball is being kicked into a player’s chest,” said Gerrard. “That should have been a straight red card and with 10 men it could have been different.”
