Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes England have the quality to "damage any team" during Euro 2012 providing they also adhere to the basics of hard work and physically matching their opponents.

Arsenal winger Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first competitive start for his country in England's 1-1 draw with France on Monday. Roy Hodgson's side put the accent on denying France space and closing them down, but Oxlade-Chamberlain is confident England can also cause their opponents problems ahead of Friday's meeting with Sweden in Kiev.

The 18-year-old said: "It's been a good start for us, we can build from here, we can definitely get stronger, and we showed our quality as well in glimpses. As long as we keep approaching these games in the right way, keep our eye on the goal and work hard and match every team we come up against physically, hopefully our attacking prowess can come out."
