Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain accepts he could be axed by England for the Sweden game.

Roy Hodgson must now decide whether to stick with the Ox or give an opportunity to Liverpool’s Stewart Downing.

Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I’m only 18 and any chance I get I’ll try to take with two hands. I’m learning from the boys.

“There is a lot of competition for places. I’m sure there’ll be squad rotation as we’ve got the players to do it and obviously there are a lot of physical demands from game to game.

“Whether I keep my place isn’t for me to say. I’ll keep working hard in training and, if I do get the call again, I’ll give it my all."
