Aaron Ramsey believes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will do well for the the Three Lions at the European Championships
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has backed team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to be a force for England at Euro 2012.
The 18-year-old made his Three Lions debut last night against Norway and was the surprise pick by manager Roy Hodgson for the tournament in Poland and Ukraine next month after only making 26 appearances for the Gunners this season.
“Alex has had a good season,” Ramsey said. “He has played a few games for us and every time he played he put in a good performance.
“He’s young, he’s exciting and is quite mature as well. He definitely has a big future ahead of him.
“Everyone was delighted for him when he got the England call-up.
“He’s definitely mature enough to handle the international stage.
“It was always going to happen at some point. I’m sure he will pick it up pretty quickly. If he gets the opportunity he will try his best to take it.”
