Hodgson full of praise for Arsenal starlet Oxlade-Chamberlain: Enormous potential and ability

England coach Roy Hodgson is full of praise for Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

After being a surprise choice for Euro 2012, he is now in the England squad on merit.

"Alex is a player with enormous potential and ability," said Hodgson. "He came in as the joker in the pack and he's certainly cemented his position.

"Like a lot of our young players, he has to fight so hard to get into his club team but we're more than happy with him.

"He has to take every chance he gets with England because, internationally, there aren't that many games in a year."
