Arsenal youths Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henri Lansbury propel England U-21s to victory

COFFEE IS POWERFUL STUFF

England's U-21 squad dismantled the Israel U-21s today in a friendly, and Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was at the heart of the quartet of second-half goals for the Young Lions. Down 1-0 at halftime, Stuart Pearce brought on the young winger, freshly arrived to the Gunners from Southampton, and according to the ever-amazing Jamie Sanderson at Young Guns, his introduction put a charge into a noodly England side.

FT. England 4-1 Israel. Oxlade-Chamberlain's introduction at 1-0 down changed game. Three assists, plus he won a penalty. Brilliant.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Some of the highlights of the match can be seen at 101 Great Goals; AOC uses his pace well on the first goal to find room to float a cross over to Martyn Waghorn. The second goal is another AOC assist, but most of the work is done by Marvin Sordell, who absolutely flamethrowers one in from 35 yards. Lord love a screamer. Primus once asked "Is It Luck?", but in this case, nobody needs to know.

AOC then won the penalty that Aston Villa's Nathan Delfouneso converted before supplying the last pass for Arsneal loanee Henri Lansbury to turn home.

If Oxlade-Chamberlain can carry this form into his play for Arsenal, well, that would be nice.
