Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks set to make his bow in senior international football in a Euro 2012 audition at the end of this month, according to The Mirror.

England face Holland on February 29 in a friendly rearranged from September last year and the 18-year-old is thought to be on the mind of boss Fabio Capello as he starts to weigh up his options for the tournament this summer.

The former Southampton man has stormed to success with the Gunners of late after being fully introduced into the starting line-up by manager Arsene Wenger.

Oxlade-Chamberlain grabbed his first two league goals for the north London outfit on Saturday against Blackburn and England’s Italian boss has apparently been discussing the prospect of the attacker being in the squad to face the Dutch with his fellow coaching staff.

After the game with Steve Kean’s side at the weekend, the player told reporters: “Obviously it [England call-up] would be very nice, but I have just got to keep my feet on the ground and take it step by step.

“I am focusing on Arsenal at the moment, and am in the under-21 squad. All I can do is concentrate on what I am involved in.”
