Bringing pace and power from the wing, Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will hope to back up his strong 2014 performances for the Gunners by starring for England this summer. The 20-year-old's first trip to the World Cup sees him enter with long player betting odds to be top scorer for his country, but his threat and quick pace can make him a serious World Cup betting tip to pay out handsomely in individual goalscorer markets during a tough Group D fixture list.
Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Southampton's Academy at the age of seven and made his professional debut in 2010, scoring his first senior league goal against Bournemouth in the first round of the League Cup at the start of the 2010/11 season.
Southampton were promoted as Oxlade-Chamberlain finished the season with nine goals and was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year, before signing for Premier League squad Arsenal in 2011.
Scoring a total of nine goals in 75 appearances from 2011 to the current day with Arsenal, Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the opening goal in the eighth minute of his Champions League debut against Greek side Olympiacos, one of 10 European showings for the side.
The Arsenal man is currently recovering from injury but is expected to make the trip to Brazil, coming off the back of an exceptional 2014 season that saw him a key attacking threat for the Gunners, scoring three times including once in a fine display against Liverpool during their FA Cup-winning campaign.
Oxlade-Chamberlain scored four professional goals at Under-21 International level for England from eight appearances, and has since made 14 showings for the senior national team and netted three times, including during a friendly 1-1 draw against World Cup hosts, Brazil.
In five World Cup qualifiers, Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a goal in both of the one-sided clashes with San Marino, that featured 13 goals combined over the brace.
