Oxlade-Chamberlain to have scan on knee injury

Arsenal and England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is to undergo a scan on his knee after suffering an injury during Wednesday’s World Cup warm-up match against Ecuador, BBC Sport has reported.

Having performed impressively in the 2-2 draw, Oxlade-Chamberlain went down under a challenge from Carlos Guezo, and after receiving treatment he was forced off, leading to fears that he could be a doubt for England’s World Cup campaign, which begins on June 14 against Italy in Manaus.


He is already unlikely to play in the Three Lions’ final warm-up match against Ecuador’s Group E rivals Honduras on Saturday, and manager Roy Hodgson admits losing the 20-year-old would be a major blow. He said: "It would be an enormous blow if we were to lose him. He did ever so well and looked really, really sharp.


"His knee buckled under the challenge as the player turned into him. At the moment, he doesn't know how to feel because he doesn't know how serious the injury is."


Hodgson singled out Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as Phil Jones and Jack Wilshere, for their outstanding performances against Reynaldo Rueda’s team, who took the lead through Enner Valencia’s header. Wayne Rooney’s close range finish and Rickie Lambert’s powerful drive turned it around, but Ecuador came away with a draw thanks to Michael Arroyo’s 25-yard shot.
