A creative and dynamic player in midfield, the 'Ox' has been on the England senior scene since first breaking into the squad as a teenager back in 2012.
Initially with Southampton's academy, when he made his first international appearance for the Young Lions in an U18 win over Poland in Wycombe, it was his subsequent switch to Arsenal which thrust him into the limelight of the Premier League.
After also featuring for the U21s, he was part of the Three Lions squad which travelled to Poland and Ukraine for EURO 2012 after making his senior debut in a warm-up game with Norway. He then went on to make his tournament debut when he started against France in England's opening match.
His first goal for England came soon after when he netted against San Marino in October 2012, but saved perhaps his best strike to date for a special occasion at the opening game of the developed Maracana Stadium in 2013 when he scored against Brazil in a 2-2 draw.
However, unfortunately-timed injuries have robbed him of the chance to feature at more tournaments, as he missed the World Cups of 2014 and 2018 and also EURO 2016.
