Calum Chambers, the 19 year old Arsenal full back, was handed his first full international debut yesterday as England sank San Marino 5-0. The youngster was delighted with the result, and professed himself delighted with the chance to play for the Three Lions.
Calum Chambers was delighted his full England debut ended in maximum points as the Three Lions beat San Marino at Wembley. And with a comparatively tougher fixture against Estonia coming up on Sunday, the youngster is hoping to retain his place in the team.
It was a good result, we can take things out of the game that we thought went really well and that we practiced and worked on the training field.
It’s an honour to play for my country and a great experience for me to get a start. Hopefully there will be more to come.
I’m really enjoying it. All the lads have been really welcoming and the staff have been great.
The training is going really well, I’m just going to try my hardest in training and in games when I get the opportunities.
It was a good goal from him [Phil Jagielka]. The first half was a bit frustrating, they were tough to break down, but we kept doing the things we work on in training and eventually it paid off and we got the goals.
You have to stay switched on, but as a full-back we had licence to push on more, attack and be more aggressive in our offensive play. But you always have to concentrate in case they counter.
Sunday [against Estonia] is going to be a tough one.
We’ll go back and take the positives from this game and go over what we need to develop for the next game and go into it confident that we can get a win.
The youngster has had an amazing few months so far, over the summer he was purchased by Arsenal from Southampton as cover, but has since established himself as a regular in the first team. Now that he as appeared for his country as well, the future looks bright for this young star.
