Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out for two weeks with an injury to the medial ligament in his knee, but may still be able to play for England in the World Cup.

Oxlade-Chamberlain went down during England's tune-up match in Miami on Wednesday when he collided with Ecuador's Carlos Gruezo. He had an MRI performed on Thursday which confirmed the damage, according to Oliver Kay of The Times.

The injury means the Arsenal attacking midfielder is unlikely to play in England's first World Cup match on June 14 against Italy, but may be able to return for the Three Lions' second match of the group stage against Uruguay on June 19.
