    Oxlade-Chamberlain dazzles with solo effort


    ALEX Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a second-half goal on a brilliant solo effort as English giants Arsenal earned their second win of their United States tour by defeating Chivas Gua-dalajara 3-1.

    He scored just five minutes into the second half, using a back heel flick to lose a Chivas defender.

    He then cut to the middle before hammering a left-footed shot into the far corner.

    England Under-21 striker Chuba Akpom out-muscled a Chivas player in front of the goal in the 56th minute to make it 3-0 in front of a crowd of 24,000 at the StubHub Center stadium in south-central Los Angeles.

    Akpom also scored the winner in Arsenal's 2-1 victory over the Major League Soccer all-star team on Thursday in San Jose, California.

    The 20-year-old is hoping to establish himself in Arsenal's first-team squad this season.

    Rob Holding opened the scoring for Arsenal off a free kick in the 34th minute.

    He tapped into an empty net from in close after Calum Chambers redirected the long kick with his left foot to the unguarded Holding.

    Angel Zaldivar scored late for Mexico's Chivas to make it 3-1 but the Premier League side remained in command.

    Chivas, who play in Liga MX, Mexico's top division, are one of the most successful teams in the history of Mexican football, bagging 11 league titles and a Concacaf Championship.

    Arsenal's Joel Campbell was fortunate that he did not get slapped with a red card after he confronted a Chivas player in the midfield.

    Both players received yellow cards.
