Arsene Wenger has talked up the young winger's chances of making the Euro 2012 England squad, echoing the calls of journalists nation wide who have nothing better to write about. Don't let the fact that he's played about 3 hours of football all season fool you, he's more than ready to take on Europe's elite this summer. Wenger told the BBC:
If I'd just taken that middle quote on its own I could have made a whole different story out of this one, but I didn't. It's called being mature guys - I guess some of us are just more grown up than others. Especially Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who Wenger wants to molest."If he does well, why not? It is not because you are young that you cannot play. We live in a world of immediacy."I would not have expected him to be so mature in September because he still looked like a boy."Now suddenly he looks like he can take pressure and that he has the personality to produce under pressure."
