Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got himself on the scoresheet as England cruised to victory against Lithuania in their final Euro 2016 qualifying clash, completing the qualification stages with a 100% record.
The Ox didn’t have his best game, but was his usual direct and attacking self. He took his goal extremely well though, and there was little the goalkeeper could do to stop it.
He took on a Lithuanian defender, but was stopped in his tracks. The ball was recovered by Tottenham’s Kyle Walker however, who played it straight back to the Arsenal man.
Chamberlain burst towards goal from a tight angle, and with no pass on opted to take it on himself. He rifled a shot towards the near post, and despite getting a hand to it the keeper could do nothing but palm it into his own net.

The 22-year-old’s attacking credentials aren’t being questioned, and while he could do with working on his end product a little, he has certainly been a threat going forward for Arsenal this season. His defensive failings have seen him miss out on regular first team football however, with Arsene Wenger preferring Aaron Ramsey on the right wing.
Arsenal transfer news
Chamberlain has endless potential however, so hopefully he begins to realise it soon and blossoms into the player we know he can become.
