Ox back in light training for England
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returned to light training for England on Monday as he continues to battle back to fitness for the World Cup.
The 20-year-old Arsenal midfielder was forced off during the Three Lions' 2-2 draw with Ecuador in Miami on Wednesday after suffering medial knee ligament damage, with widespread reports suggesting he would be out for a minimum of 10 days.
Despite fears that the youngster would miss the tournament in Brazil, Roy Hodgson confirmed that Oxlade-Chamberlain would recover in time "without a shadow of a doubt", and England confirmed his return at their Rio de Janeiro training camp via Twitter on Monday.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to miss England's first two Group D matches against Italy and Uruguay, but Hodgson hopes he will be fit to feature against Costa Rica on June 24.
The 66-year-old coach had previously stated that England would wait until the "last minute" to make a decision on Oxlade-Chamberlain's fitness, but he travelled with the squad to Rio.
