Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reveals his "relief" at netting his first international goal for England.

England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that it was a "relief" to net his first goal in an England shirt last night.

The Arsenal man scored the fifth and final goal as England saw off minnows San Marino at Wembley.

"It's a relief to get the monkey off my back as they say," the teenager said.

"I've been looking for my first goal for England and my dad's been pushing me, telling me I need to get a goal."

Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal made him the fourth-youngest scorer in England history, with Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney and Tommy Lawton.
