Arsenal’s wonderkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain confirmed his incredible late form with a great appearance today against Blackburn and with two excellent goals, the first of his life in the Premier League.
“It was an enjoyable day for everyone,” he told Sky Sports.
“We knew we had to bounce back after the 0-0 away at Bolton and the amount of chances we created there but failed to score. We knew that if we created chances eventually we would take them and today, by the scoreline, I think we did take them.
“We have been looking for that all season and I think we are back to normal ways now. We just have to take this as a positive step and keep pushing on.
“It’s always nice to be on the goal sheet but, for me, it’s about the team not the final score. But it was nice to score and to have a brace at the same time in the Premier League, I am very happy with that.”
When asked if he’s thinking about going with England at the EURO 2012 this year the youngster replied:
“Not really. First things first, I have to keep my place in the Arsenal team and keep doing well for this football club.
“I am involved in the U21 squad at the moment, so that is what I am focusing on. Until that happens, I can’t really comment on that.
“Obviously it would be nice, it’s what I aspire to do as a footballer, but I have to keep my feet on the ground and keep working hard.”
With these kinds of appearances Chamberlain will not only travel to Poland and Ukraine but will also make room for himself in the first team with Capello being a known admirer of the youngster. Wilshere might also be there as things are progressing with his injury, but it’s still unknown if he’s going to make it.
