London, May 6: England and Arsel’s midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was on Friday ruled out for up to two months with a fresh knee injury, ending his Euro 2016 participation dreams, says Arsel mager Arsene Wenger.

The 22 year-old England midfielder, who has not played for Arsel since injuring his knee against Barcelo in a Champions League match in February. “There is no chance,” Wenger said on Friday, when asked if Oxlade-Chamberlain could make Roy Hodgson’s squad for this summer’s tourment in France. England’s first Group B game is against Russia in Marseille on Saturday, June 11. “It is very sad. He was physically ready and looking sharp. He had one week’s training last week, but he planned to play on Tuesday night but got injured on Monday morning.”

He started the first game of Euro 2012 against France, stood a very good chance of being in Roy Hodgson’s squad if he was fit, but will now surely miss the tourment which starts on June 10.

Although the 22-year-old had recovered from an origil knee injury, he suffered a setback on Monday morning ahead of an Arsel Under-21 match on Tuesday, Wenger confirmed. He was expected to return to the first team for Sunday’s Premier League game against Manchester City. IANS
