Liverpool and England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has undergone successful surgery after sustaining knee ligament damage last month.

The 24-year-old will miss the World Cup after suffering the injury in the Champions League semi-final first-leg win over Roma at Anfield.

"Knee surgery was a success and the hard work has already begun," Oxlade-Chamberlain wrote on Twitter.

He is expected to be fit in time for the start of the new season.
