Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got another start for the England national team against Switzerland on Tuesday, which saw Wayne Rooney finally smash Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record.
England eventually won 2-0 after an uninspiring first half with goals from Spurs’ Harry Kane and a Rooney penalty.
The Ox finally got a whole 90 minutes under his belt, which has been a long time coming, and is a fantastic indicator that his fitness is now where it should be. After playing for two years in pain and then not getting enough game time, this is a big step.
England had already qualified for Euro 2016 against San Marino so the pressure was off, but a win kept their 100% win record in tact, which is a great achievement, considering the Three Lion’s performances over recent years.
Meanwhile, Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs started and remained on the bench, which from Theo’s point of view in particular, will be disappointing.
