Oxlade-Chamberlain has not recovered from his knee injury and he will not play in England's match against Costa Rica on Tuesday in the World Cup, the BBC reports. Coach Roy Hodgson said "Alex had a slight recurrence of the knee problem and will be out."

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered the injury before the World Cup began, giving Hodgson the opportunity to replace him on the 23-man roster. He ultimately decide to keep the Arsenal midfielder on, although it's difficult to see if he would have made a major difference for the Three Lions. England have already been eliminated from the knockout round, but Costa Rica need at least a draw to win Group D.
