Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put in a wonderful performance as England U21 crushed Israel U21 4-1 in their international friendly at Oakwell on Monday night. Oxlade-Chamberlain, a half time substitute for Jonjo Shelvey, had a hand in all of England’s four goals as the Young Lions recovered from a 1-0 half time deficit to crush Israel 4-1.
Oxlade-Chamberlain set up goals for Martyn Waghorn and Marvin Sordell ( Sordell’s goal is a must watch!) before winning a penalty that Nathan Delfouneso converted. He then assisted fellow Arsenal youngster Henri Lansbury ( who took over the captain’s armband from Jack Rodwell at half time) for England’s fourth in stoppage time. Mohammad Klibat scored Israel’s opening goal.
