Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been selected in England’s final 23-man squad for Euro 2012.

The Arsenal ace, who was born and grew up in Portsmouth, was named in Roy Hodgson’s line-up for the tournament next month.

The 18-year-old former St John’s School pupil was a shock inclusion in England’s provisional squad.

But after earning his first cap against Norway on Saturday, Oxlade-Chamberlain, the son of former Pompey midfielder Mark Chamberlain, will be going to Ukraine and Poland.

Former Pompey defender Glen Johnson has also made the squad despite struggling with a recent toe injury.

Full squad: 1 Joe Hart, 2 Glen Johnson, 3 Ashley Cole, 4 Steven Gerrard, 5 Gary Cahill, 6 John Terry, 7 Theo Walcott, 8 Frank Lampard, 9 Andy Carroll, 10 Wayne Rooney, 11 Ashley Young, 12 Leighton Baines, 13 Robert Green, 14 Phil Jones, 15 Joleon Lescott, 16 James Milner, 17 Scott Parker, 18 Phil Jagielka, 19 Stewart Downing, 20 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 21 Jermain Defoe, 22 Danny Welbeck, 23 Jack Butland.
