Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained what may be a very bad knee injury in England's 2-2 draw with Ecuador today, according to the Guardian:
Hodgson says Oxlade-Chamberlain's "knee buckled" and is a real injury concern. Scan tomorrow— Daniel Taylor (@DTguardian) June 4, 2014
Obviously the scan will tell us how bad the injury is; hopefully it is the kind of knee injury that only means a person misses like four weeks and not the kind of knee injury that means a person misses nine months. With Theo Walcott already out with a torn ACL for another little while, losing the pace and dribbling of Chamberlain would really salt the...erm...add insult to...screw it.
There really is nothing I hate more in sports than injuries, and when they're sustained in what I feel is a colossally stupid, corrupt, mind-bogglingly anachronistic example of football, well, let's just say that I am not really happy with this.
Please be okay, Ox, in the name of all that is holy. If you tore your ACL in a friendly, I will basically cry forever.
