England midfielder’s World Cup hopes in doubt

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was forced off in the 2-2 draw with Ecuador with what seems to be a knee injury, but the result of the damage is not yet clear, Mirror reports.

If upcoming scans turn out to be serious, he could very well miss out on the upcoming World Cup which is due to take place next week. 

England manager Roy Hodgson is looking worried over the situation of the Arsenal star, who only recently returned to full fitness.

“Oxlade-Chamberlain is the one that bothers. His knee buckled under the the challenge as the player turned into him. He’ll have a scan tomorrow, I’d imagine. When we’ve had the scan, we’ll know more.

“When I have to cross that bridge (of call-ups), I’ll do that. At the moment I don’t know the extent of the injury. I’ll have to wait until I know the extent of the injury before making any other comment.

“My hope is that Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be seriously injured. He did every so well tonight and looked really, really sharp. It would be an enormous blow if we were to lose him, so I’d prefer to concentrate on the satisfaction and positivity I can take from the game.”
