VIDEO: Arsenal starlet Oxlade-Chamberlain nets for England v Brazil

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain

Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of England's heroes in a 2-2 draw at the Maracana.

England took on Brazil earlier this evening in an encounter which really was as the old cliche states, a game of two halves.

The first was all backs to the wall for England, but when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on in the second the game changed.

The Arsenal 19-year-old scored a tremendous half-volley from 25 yards out, lashing the ball home at a low trajectory past rumoured future club-mate Julio Cesar.

Wayne Rooney scored England's second via a deflection, with Fred and Paulinho netting for Brazil as the game ended 2-2.

Oxlade-Chamberlain went one better than his dad Mark Chamberlain who played for England at the ground in 1984, but his father amazingly confessed after the game he had slept through his son's goal after dozing off during the game.

Oops. In case you are reading Mark, here is the goal in all it's splendour...
