Young Gunner bringing goals

Published Add your comment

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has expressed delight at netting his first goal in the Champions League, with the starlet scoring within eight minutes against Olympiacos last night.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has come a long way from npower Championship newcomers Southampton last season, and the youngster is already showing that Arsene Wenger he made the right decision to snap up the winger for £15 million in the last transfer window.

And after scoring, Oxlade-Chamberlain said he only wants to keep improving and getting better for the club, and fight to be a regular starter this season.


“It was really good experience for me. The football is a lot quicker," Oxlade-Chamberlain said. “This is where I want to play, at the top level.

“I've got a lot of work to do to get many more appearances in the Champions League.

“It's always nice to score your first goal in the Champions League.”

But the England Under 21 international hasn’t lost sight of what’s important, saying that the team effort against the Greek side was the most important goal to achieve.

He added: “The main thing tonight was for the boys to get the three points and I'm glad we achieved that.

"If I'm not aspiring to be in the squad there's something wrong. I've just got to keep working hard every day and hopefully I'll get in the squad."

Arsenal face Tottenham on the weekend in what will no doubt be a tough match up for the north London rivals. Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping more than ever to continue his top form, as the Gunners look to get their season back on track.
