Arsenal winger Oxlade-Chamberlain: Great working with Wilshere, Walcott

Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says England fans can be excited about the young talent coming through.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of several Arsenal youngsters who have put their hands up for Euro 2012, with Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott also in the frame.

He said: "The fact that they are pushing on already and are in the England squad, while playing week in week out in the Premier League, can only be good.

"There are a lot of English players coming through, such as the likes of Danny Welbeck and Kyle Walker, while at Arsenal we have the likes of Jack Wilshere and Theo.

"As long as everyone keeps progressing as they are at the moment, it will be good for England's future.

"We have a lot of English talent here at Arsenal and we will all be working hard to get into the national team.

"The longer you play with people, the better you get to know them.

"You bond, and being around the same players means that you bounce off each other. It will be good for the future.

"For their age, they are all really mature and fearless.

"You forget how young Jack is - he is such a confident lad - but at the same time they are all humble as well.

"When it comes to football, they are really focused and just get on with the job.

"They are technically very good and have the right mindsets to become world-class players."
