Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scores for England on crazy Wilshere assist

New, comments

Save some for the weekend, guys.

Arsenal's English core is combining beautifully for England as they're (at the moment) up 1-0 against Scotland on this great goal from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere.

Probably the best part of this goal for me is that somehow, the match commentator mistook The OC for Wayne Rooney (?!?!?!) at first. I haven't checked yet to see who was calling the game, but until further notice I'm going to assume it's a brother or cousin of Andre Marriner. Seriously, Oxlade-Chamberlain has more people forget who he is than Ann Veal.

The move actually started with a Danny Welbeck pass to Wilshere, so hey, who knows? Maybe Arsene Wenger's dream of creating a halfway-decent England team out of Arsenal players isn't as far from a reality as we thought? Now all we need to do is create a halfway-decent Arsenal team out of Arsenal players, am I right?

Hello? Is this thing on? Hello?
