Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted that experiencing Euro 2012 with England has taught him a lot of lessons ahead of the new Premier League season.
The Arsenal winger made three appearances at the tournament in his first inclusion in an England squad, and the 18-year-old claims that he benefited from working with his international teammates.
Oxlade-Chamberlain told Arsenal's official website: "Obviously it was my first involvement in a senior England squad, and for it to be at a massive tournament like the Euros - well, it doesn't get much better than that.
"It was brilliant to be in and around the squad and to train with the players I trained with. I learnt a lot from it.
"I was grateful for every minute that I got on the pitch and the whole experience was unbelievable."
Arsenal's new season begins with the visit of Sunderland on August 18.
