Arsenal whizkid Oxlade-Chamberlain grateful for support from England pals

Arsenal whizkid Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is delighted with the support he's received from England teammates.

The 19-year-old Arsenal flier is desperate to get another chance for England against Ukraine on Tuesday and show the Wembley crowd what he can do.

"I get endless advice on all sorts of things offensively and attacking," said Oxlade-Chamberlain. "It's more team, tactical advice.

"Not being as experienced as everyone else, they can always help me out on that side of the game and then everyone just says, 'When you get in the attacking third, do your stuff'.

"That gives me the licence to know they are backing me and have confidence in me to let off the handbrake and do what I can do. What's happened so far is just a small chunk of my career, or what I see my career as being. I don't get carried away or think I've made it or anything."
