England manager Roy Hodgson has admitted he is concerned about the fitness of ex-Saint Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – just 10 days before their first World Cup match.
Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered an injury scare during the 2-2 draw with Ecuador in Miami when Gruezo kicked the bottom of Oxlade-Chamberlain's right foot and then, while rolling over exaggeratedly, landed on the back of the Arsenal midfielder's leg.
Afterwards, Hodgson said: “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.”
