Arsenal quartet my miss out on Euro 2016 1

Posted on March 27, 2016 by David Nugent

England came back from two goals down against world champions Germany to win 3-2 in Berlin last night. The only member of the Arsenal team to feature was Danny Welbeck who started on the wing and was replaced by Jamie Vardy, who scored the equaliser to make it 2-2.

A number of Arsenal players have been regular members of the England squad in recent years, but the likes of Kieran Gibbs, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are in big danger of missing Euro 2016.

In danger of missing out

Can Oxlade-Chamberlain take his international chance? 0

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently featuring for England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against San Marino, a game the Three Lions are odds of 1/100 to win.

The youngster has lots of potential, but his development at the Emirates Stadium has been curtailed by injuries. He is a promising player for both club and country. England boss Roy Hodgson is obviously keen to see what the former-Southampton star can do.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was favoured over Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling for the game, as Hodgson looks at his wide options with Euro 2016 qualification set to be confirmed with a win in San Marino.

Jack Wilshere impresses for England 0

Arsenal midfield star Jack Wilshere impressed for England in their 3-2 Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia on Sunday. The 23-year-old played in a deep-lying playmaker role for the Three Lions and scored an impressive second half brace.


The midfielder has now been the bright spot in consecutive games for England, after being one of the few positives against the Republic of Ireland in a dull goalless draw. It seems he could now be ready to step-up and be a big influence in the Three Lions team.


Can Danny Welbeck now find form for Arsenal? 0

Posted on March 28, 2015 by David Nugent

Danny Welbeck has been a bit of an enigma throughout his short career so far. He has pace and trickery and works hard for the team. However, there always seems something missing from his game that makes a truly top-class player, usually it is his finishing.

Welbeck was England’s man of the match against Lithuania on Friday night in the Three Lions comprehensive 4-0 Euro 2016 qualifier.


Some cynics will say that it is only Lithuania and he should be impressive against such a poor standard of opposition and that display should be the norm for the forward.

Could Arsenal be the key to England success? 0

On Thursday night five Arsenal players featured for England as the Three Lions hammered minnows San Marino 5-0 at Wembley. Kieran Gibbs, Danny Welbeck, Calum Chambers and Jack Wilshere started the game, while midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came off the bench and produced a decent cameo.


Gunners midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain believes the presence of so many Arsenal players can help the national team. The youngster told the Daily Star: “When you’re with your team-mates at club level day-in, day-out, you understand each other and you can take that into international football,”

Gibbs form finally earns him an England call-up ahead of Euro 2016 qualifiers 1

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs has been given deserved recognition for his fine form with the Gunners, with England manager Roy Hodgson calling up the young defender for his national team. He will be joined with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.

Gibbs has been Arsenal’s first choice at the left-back for over a year, and has been consistent in the backline, despite Nacho Monreal being the player initially signed to be Arsenal’s No.1 choice back in 2013.

England have San Marino and Estonia in two Euro 2016 qualifiers to come, and Gibbs is likely to start in the San Marino clash as the Italian-based team aren’t expected to cause any problems for the Three Lions.

Theo Walcott rules out derby return 0

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is not setting a date for his return from a cruciate ligament injury picked-up in the Gunners FA Cup win over Tottenham in January. There were rumours that he could make his return against arch-rivals Spurs at the end of the month, but he has now ruled that out.


Walcott confirmed he will not be returning against Spurs by telling the Sun: “I haven’t put a specific date or looked at a game yet,”

Welbeck scores brace in England’s Euro 2016 qualifying victory 0

Arsenal’s new striker Danny Welbeck gave Gunners fans a hint of what is to come last night as he fired home a brace for England in the Three Lions 2-0 win at Switzerland in Euro 2016 qualifying.


Apart from his goals Welbeck looked lively all game and was a constant menace to the Switzerland defence.

His pace and direct running played a key part in Roy Hodgson’s side victory. Welbeck looks to have forged what could be a very dangerous attacking alliance with former-Manchester United team Wayne Rooney and Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling.

Arsenal pair to start for England against Norway 0

Posted on September 03, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal pair Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will start England’s friendly game against Norway tonight. The Gunners midfield pair will start in a youthful looking midfield alongside Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling.


Jack Wilshere’s performances for the Gunners have been very inconsistent in recent seasons. Injuries have constantly disrupted the midfielder’s develop and career. Arsenal now has a lot of options in midfield, especially in the more advanced midfield positions.

Wilshere had supposedly been earmarked by Arsene Wenger as the Gunners defensive midfielder this season, but he has not yet really fulfilled that position this season.

Hodgson tips Ox to return against Uruguay 0

Posted on June 10, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

England boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could take part in the second group game against Uruguay at the 2014 World Cup after stepping up his recovery from injury.

The 20-year-old suffered a knee ligament damage in the friendly game against Ecuador and it was believed he could miss the tournament final altogether. Roy Hodgson then said he would give the youngster as much time as need to try and prove his fitness and the boss has now been rewarded for his confidence in the talented player.
