Oxlade-Chamberlain facing World Cup KO
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's World Cup dream hangs in the balance after reports emerged that the midfielder could be out of action for up to three weeks.
The Arsenal man limped off the field with a knee problem during England's friendly against Ecuador on Thursday after a tackle from Carlos Gruezo.
While the best prognosis suggests that the 20-year-old could be out for just 10 days, in time for him to return for England's second group stage match against Uruguay, the worst-case scenario will see him miss the entire group stage.
Manager Roy Hodgson now has to decide if the player's fitness is worth gambling on or to call up a replacement.
Manchester United's Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick are the likely candidates to replace Oxlade-Chamberlain.
