Last night’s England match was bitter sweet if you’re an Arsenal fan. Whilst England ran away with five goals, Walcott was heading to the hospital for a suspected rib injury. The sweet part was that ‘The Ox’ managed to score his first goal for the national team.
England played San Marino last night and whilst the early upset of losing Walcott rocked the team, England shook off the blow and went on the attack. San Marino, as expected, parked the bus making it difficult for England to score but it was not enough as the three lions broke down the opposition piece by piece.
19 year old Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain followed in his father’s footsteps last night when he scored for England as well as cementing a piece of history. It was the first time in England’s history that a father and son had netted for the national side. ‘The Ox’ has essentially done what his father did for England scoring once in eight games.
That’s good news from a Gunner perspective. The young winger hasn’t had a consistent run of games for us but has once again shown that he has more than enough potential to be included in the starting eleven each week. Wenger will be hoping that the winger will return unscathed from the international break and will be eager to get a report on just how serious Walcott’s injury is.
England next take on Poland on Tuesday and ‘The Ox’ is expected to start.
