Liverpool Star To Miss Russia 2018

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be part of the England squad heading to this summer's World Cup

In excellent form for Liverpool recently, the 24-year-old was stretchered off early on during the Reds' Champions League romp against AS Roma on Tuesday evening.

His injury has been confirmed as a knee ligament injury which will now see him face a race against time to be fit for the beginning of the 2018/19 season.

Liverpool's dominant display means they are huge favourites to reach the Champions League Final, scheduled for Kiev on 26 May, one week before England's Wembley friendly against Nigeria.
