Arsenal star’s brilliant goal that stunned even Wenger
Arsenal star’s brilliant goal that stunned even Wenger

At least something to cheer for! Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave all of us a glimpse of what he can do with a stunning goal against Lens.

The England international was a second half substitute for the Gunners as they drew their first pre-season friendly in France, and it’s quite fair to say he provided one of the game’s only real moments of excellent quality.

Running onto a ball from Serge Gnabry, Oxlade-Chamberlain showed brilliant invention and execution to chip the goalkeeper and find the far corner in style.

Arsenal started with a relatively experienced first XI despite being without the likes of Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla.

Although, Arsenal looked shaky throughout, and went behind after an awful defensive error by Calum Chambers in the first half.

Mathias Autret capitalised on the rebound after Calum Chambers’ slack header allowed Abdellah Zoubir to dart forward and shoot shortly before the break.

Still, Arsene Wenger will be pleased to at least see his team score and avoid getting off to a losing start ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

It could become a big moment as well for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been plagued by injuries during his Emirates Stadium career and who will be looking to really kick on this season.

Chamberlain’s goal gave the Premier League runners-up a share of the spoils and Arsene Wenger will have been satisfied with that given the determined manner of his team’s comeback.

They now continue their warm-up campaign with two friendlies in America against an MLS All-Stars team and Mexican club Chivas de Guadalajara, with the first game coming next Friday.
