Oxlade-Chamberlain out of Euro 2016 – Wenger
England’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss the Euro 2016 finals in France Championships after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Friday the Gunners winger has suffered a new knee injury which will sideline him for up to two months.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has not played since injuring a knee in the Champions League defeat by Barcelona on February 23.
He was due to play for Arsenal’s Under-21 team earlier in the week but has now sustained a second knee problem.
“There is no chance,” Wenger said when asked if Oxlade-Chamberlain could make the European Championships after confirming he faces six to eight weeks out.
“I had a conversation with Alex and with our medical team and they told me he will back in July. He was out for a while and was not overloaded with games.
“You want a guy of 22 years of age to go to the European Championships so it is very sad.”
