England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks set to miss the World Cup after the FA confirmed he has suffered a medial knee ligament injury.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, 20, limped out of Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Ecuador and his participation in Brazil now appears to hang in the balance, with his knee problem expected to take at least three weeks to heal.

A statement on the FA's official website read: "Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained a medial knee ligament injury during the World Cup warm-up game against Ecuador in Miami on Wednesday.

"The England medical team are continuing to monitor and treat the injury."
