Sol Campbell believes Arsenal's thrashing by Barcelona should be career defining for his young teammates.

Campbell urged his team-mates to give an honest self-assessment of their contribution against Barca, and progress from the lesson handed out by the European champions in the 4-1 win.

He said: “Everyone has to learn and be honest about it.

“Ask: ‘Where do I want my career going?’ You have to be honest with yourself and say: ‘I must work harder, understand the game more and realise it’s a big world out there’.”
