- Arsenal winger Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out for "three to four weeks" with a hamstring
injury, according to manager Arsene Wenger. He was injured during a 2-1 FA Cup
victory over Manchester United on Monday. Oxlade-Chamberlain only returned at
the end of February after a month out because of a groin problem. "It's
frustrating. It's a shame that in the final sprint, he's not there," said
Jack Wilshere, meanwhile, has not featured since injuring his ankle
in November 2014, coincidentally also against Manchester United. The midfielder
has since undergone minor surgery to remove studs from the pin in his ankle, and
is also expected to need a few more weeks recovery time. "He had a little
inflammation of his ankle, so we decided to do it now. We had to rest him
anyway, so we decided to get these screws off instead of doing it at the end of
the season, when there is England again. We wanted to combine both together."

- West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper
Ben Foster has been ruled out for at least four weeks with a knee
injury. He damaged cartilage during West Brom's Premier League win
over Stoke on Saturday. "It's rotten news for Ben because he's been so
consistent," West Brom head coach Tony Pulis said. "He kept seven
clean sheets in 10 games." Foster will likely miss Premier League
matches against Manchester City, QPR and Leicester City. He will also
be absent for England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania at
Wembley on 27 March and the international friendly against Italy in
Turin four days later. "We've got the international break coming up,
which I hope will give our medical team the chance to work on Ben's
rehab and we will reassess later," Pulis continued.

earned a first senior England call-up. The 21-year-old, who has scored
26 goals in 42 games this season, is part of a 24-man squad named by
Roy Hodgson. "I think the whole country is excited about Harry," said
the England manager. "It would have been a surprise if he wasn't
selected." Kane is named alongside Tottenham team-mate Kyle Walker. He
returns to the national squad for the first time since March 2014.
Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph is back after missing November's
games against Slovenia and Scotland with injury. Only two goalkeepers

a knee injury. Jack Butland is with the under-21's but remains on
standby to be called up if necessary.

is looking bad," Saints boss Ronald Koeman said after their 2-0 win.
We have to wait for the scan. I hope it will be OK for him but the
doctor is not positive." Kelvin Davis, 38, came on to replace Forster
against Burnley, making a string of saves in the Saints' Premier
League victory, and joked "a spot had opened up in the England side"
after Forster's injury.
Danny Rose has also been drafted in to
replace Luke Shaw.

call-up by scoring a hat-trick for Tottenham in their 4-3 victory over
bottom club Leicester City.

Italy because of a variety of injuries. Left-back Ryan Bertrand has
