Arsenal superkid Oxlade-Chamberlain wows England teammates

Arsenal superkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has wowed his new England teammates in training this week.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is ready to stake his claim as he makes his first start for his country this evening against Belgium.

Roy Hodgson will test out The Ox on the left side of midfield, with James Milner on the right. If the 18-year-old makes a success of it, a spot against France is likely to be his.

The Ox, the wild-card selection in Hodgson's 23-man squad, has made a huge impression in the England camp since joining up and got his first action as a sub against Norway last week.

Senior players have been stunned by the way he has fitted in so well and so quickly without being at all daunted by playing for his country.
