Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sustains bad injury, doubt for World Cup

Then you can imagine that it's hard.

Liverpool suffered an early blow during their UEFA Champions League semi-final against AS Roma on Tuesday, as star midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had to come off with an injury in the first half.

The 24-year-old, who joined Liverpool from Arsenal in August, was carried off on a stretcher in the 18th minute after making a sliding tackle on Roma full-back Aleksandar Kolarov.

After the game, Reds' boss Jürgen Klopp admitted that the injury looked to be serious.

"The biggest problem that we have today 100 percent is that we lost Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played brilliant as long he was in", Klopp said in a postgame television interview.


And it poses the potential risk of Oxlade-Chamberlain missing the opportunity to involve himself in England's up-coming World Cup campaign and also see out his season at Anfield.

Oxlade-Chamberlain started both of England's friendlies last month and looked set to be included in Gareth Southgate's squad heading to Russian Federation.

The £35million midfielder has been a stand-out player for the Reds this season, following his summer move from fellow Premier League rival and has managed two goals in his seven Champions League appearances for the Reds this term.

"I'm a very positive person and I hope it's not only a few weeks and it's not that bad".

"Oxlade-Chamberlain's is probably a really bad injury", the German told BT Sport. "So we have to find solutions, we need to be creative, and that's what we try to be".
