Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the friendly against Italy

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has become the third member of Roy Hodgson’s England squad to pull out of Wednesday’s friendly with Italy in Berne.

The 18-year-old reported for duty this morning but, after picking up an ankle injury in the Gunners’ 4-0 friendly win over Cologne yesterday, has immediately been released back to his club.

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s departure follows last night’s withdrawals of Joe Hart and Daniel Sturridge. Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has been called into Hodgson’s squad.
