Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just had a moment he will remember for a while.
Arsenal’s promising midfielder scored only his second ever goal for his country, but it was a massive one as it came at the Estádio do Maracanã where England and Brazil were involved in a pulsating 2-2 affair on Sunday.
The 19-year-old first attempted to exchange passes with Lampard but saw the ball return to him from Rooney, and without taking a second to think about it, ‘the Ox’ smashed a scorcher into the bottom corner of the net from right outside the penalty area. That strike leveled matters at 1-1 before a Rooney goal gave England a sniff at a famous victory, but that dream did not last for too long as Brazil found an equalizer in the dying minutes.
Here was Oxlade-Chamberlain’s strike though.
