Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has praised England for getting off to a winning start on Wednesday as the Three Lions look to turn a new chapter after a disappointing World Cup.
The Arsenal forward was selected alongside fellow Gunners team-mate Jack Wilshere as newly-appointed England captain Wayne Rooney scored a second-half penalty to secure a 1-0 win against Norway at Wembley.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who moved to Arsenal from Southampton in 2011, didn’t feature at the World Cup in Brazil after the 21-year-old picked up a knee ligament injury during training at the tournament.
And the England forward, who earned his 17th Three Lions cap against Norway, was happy to play a part in his side’s edgy victory ahead of their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Switzerland on Monday.
“Good to get off to a winning start last night,” Oxlade-Chamberlain posted on Instagram.
The Arsenal forward has been a regular fixture in Arsene Wenger’s side so far this season, although the former Saints man is still searching for his first goal.
Oxlade-Chamberlain will be looking to build on his return of three goals in 20 appearances during an injury-hit 2013/14 campaign.
