Knee injury rules Oxlade-Chamberlain out of World Cup

LONDON: England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the World Cup after sustaining knee ligament damage while playing for Liverpool against AS Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old left the field on a stretcher after a collision with Roma fullback Aleksandar Kolarov in the first half of Liverpool’s 5-2 first-leg victory at Anfield.

“Liverpool FC can confirm Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 2017-18 season is over for both club and country due to a knee ligament injury sustained against AS Roma,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
