Hodgson has until Friday to make a change to his 23-man squad, but it looks like the England manager will not be making any alterations.
"It looks very unlikely that we'll replace him (Oxlade-Chamberlain)," Hodgson said. "I don't think that will be the case.
"He has got a strained medial ligament, but he is certainly working very hard and I don't think he could be further forward in terms of his progression than he is now. He's well up there."
