Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain became the youngest-ever English goalscorer in the Champions League when he netted against Olympiacos on Wednesday night.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring in Arsenal’s 2-1 win with a fine run and finish in the eighth minute at Emirates Stadium.

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s strike means that the three youngest English scorers in the competition are all Arsenal players with Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott making up the top three.
