Ex-Saint Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pulls out of England squad
10:59am Monday 13th August 2012 in International
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has become the latest member of Roy Hodgson's England squad to pull out of Wednesday's friendly with Italy in Berne.
The ex-Saints winger reported for duty this morning but, after picking up an ankle injury in Arsenal's friendly with 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.
