It’s been seven months since Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s season and World Cup hopes came to a drastic end, tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in a crunching UEFA Champions League challenge.

In the months since that Champions League night in Anfield against AS Roma, Oxlade-Chamberlain has been recovering, gaining strength in his right knee and putting in countless hours in the gym to return to the field. In a video posted by Liverpool, Oxlade-Chamberlain reveals how the recovery process has been, full of good days and bad, and how far he is from returning to the field.
