''I MISSED MY SON'S GOAL AGAINST BRAZIL BECAUSE I FELL ASLEEP'' ADMITS FATHER OF OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN AND FORMER ENGLAND WINGER, MARK CHAMBERLAIN
Former England international Mark Chamberlain, who is the father of Arsenal's winger cum midfielder, Oxlade-Chamberlain have admitted that he did not see his son's wonder goal against Brazil in a friendly at the Maracana stadium because he fell asleep in front of his television.
Oxlade-Chamberlain mirrored his father by playing for his country in Brazil's Maracana Stadium, but went one step better by scoring in the iconic venue.
He climbed off the bench to draw Roy Hodgson's men level at 1-1 with a fine half volley, but his dad missed it.
