Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out of the England squad for the Euro 2016 tournament, Arsene Wenger confirmed.
The 22-year-old sustained the injury in training this week and will need up to eight weeks of rehabilitation, ruling him out of the European Championships which is due to start on June 10.
Wenger said: “There’s no chance [of him making the Euros]. I’ve not spoken to [England boss] Roy [Hodgson] yet because I was only informed yesterday.
“I had a conversation with Alex and our medical team and they told me he will not be back until the beginning of July.
“It’s bad news because you want a guy of 22 years of age to go to the European Championship [ Euro 2016 ].
“It’s very sad. He’s an impact player as well so he could have had a big contribution to England’s success.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain has made 33 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal this season but has not played since being injured against Barcelona in their Champions League clash on February 23.
