Hero of the Week: Arsenal and England's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalNovember 7, 2016

Sometimes there is hope to be found in disappointment. For Arsenal, Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich was painful, if predictable, but in their 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stood up to be counted.

Still only 20, the Ox showed a maturity beyond his years and an appetite for taking the game to the mighty Bayern in their own back yard.

For highlighting what the future holds, for both Arsenal and England, he's my hero of the week.
