Team News: Zaha Returns Against Oxford

21 July 2018

Roy Hodgson has made one change to his Palace team for their pre-season friendly of the summer, with Wilfried Zaha coming into the Eagles line-up to face Oxford United.

The attacker left Palace’s training camp in Scandinavia to deal with a family issue, but he is back in red and blue today as a replacement for Christian Benteke, who picked up an injury in the 6-1 win at Halmstads on Monday.
