As he embarks on yet another loan move, this time to Championship giants West Ham United, Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury put on a superb Man of the Match display for Stuart Pearce’s U21 side against Azerbaijan, netting two goals and providing a couple of assists as the young England side coasted to a 6-0 win.

Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain notched two assists himself, including the cross for Lansbury’s superb first strike on the 20 minute mark.


With a performance worthy of his (comparatively) exotic name already under his belt this season, Lansbury could well be a key player in Sam Allardyce’s plans to get the Hammers back into the top tier.
