Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has become the latest member of Roy Hodgson's England squad to pull out of Wednesday's friendly with Italy in Berne.
The winger reported for duty on Monday morning but, after sustaining an ankle injury in Arsenal's friendly with Cologne on Sunday, has immediately been released back to his club.
Oxlade-Chamberlain's departure follows Sunday night's withdrawals of Joe Hart and Daniel Sturridge. Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has been called into Hodgson's squad.
