Oxlade-Chamberlain's hopes in balance

Roy Hodgson will give Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as long as possible to keep his World Cup hopes alive.

The England manager feared Oxlade-Chamberlain's World Cup was over before it started after he suffered a knee injury in the warm-up draw against Ecuador.

Scans have shown that his injury is a strain, rather than a tear, which is expected to keep him out for about two weeks. That would rule him out of England's first two Group D games against Italy and Uruguay.

The England medical team will continue to monitor the Arsenal player before a final decision is made. Hodgson cannot replace Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately because his injury is not currently tournament-ending.

England have up until 24 hours before kick-off in their first game against Italy a week tomorrow to call up a replacement if they can prove to FIFA that the injury will prevent the player from taking any part in the finals.
