Arsenal’s draw at Leicester appears to have come at a bigger cost than two dropped points with several first team stars pulling out of international duty.
Laurent Koscielny has been ruled out of France’s friendlies against Spain and Serbia with the first half head injury he sustained in a clash with Leicester’s Jeff Schlupp, while Mesut Ozil has an ankle problem that sees him miss Germany’s match with Argentina and makes him a doubt for the World Cup winners’ first Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland on the 7th September.
The FA also reported this morning that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played no part in England’s training session ahead of Wednesday’s game with Norway at Wembley. The midfielder went down just moment after coming on as a substitute and spent much of the last ten minutes limping.
Calum Chambers also missed full training in favour of a recovery session, although Jack Wilshere did train with Roy Hodgson for the first time since the World Cup.
