Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered knee ligament damage during last week's friendly between England and Ecuador, but according to BBC Sport, England manager Roy Hodgson is optimistic about his chances of making the World Cup.

England came through their final pre-tournament warm-up match against Honduras with a 0-0 stalemate, in which Honduras' physical and reckless tackling stole the limelight.

Hodgson started with a front four of Adam Lallana, Danny Welbeck, Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge on Saturday, but with Oxlade-Chamberlain now looking at a possible starting spot in Brazil, the Three Lions boss may face a selection headache.

Here's how we'd go about England's starting XI for the World Cup, in a 4-2-3-1 formation—be prepared for a few big calls. Let us know your picks in the comments below.
