For a nineteen year old, Calum Chambers is living a life that many dream of but only a few get to live. He is a regular starter at Arsenal, one of the biggest and most supported clubs in the world and has already had his first taste of silverware after winning the Community Shield in August.
Joining The Gunners has come with its benefits as the defender first earned his England cap soon after joining Arsenal from Southampton in the summer.
He came on as a second half substitute against Norway back in September but later got his full debut in October when England thrashed San Marino 5-0.
“It’s a dream come true,” Chambers told Arsenal Player. “I’m sure every kid dreams of playing for their country when they’re growing up. To actually achieve it is amazing and it’s such a proud moment for me and my family.”
He also expressed how he felt when he finally earned his first cap for England
“Making my debut was an amazing occasion. I was nervous and a little bit scared but everyone put me at ease. I had all of my family and friends there to support me, and I was excited to win my first cap.”
Chambers admitted having his Arsenal teammates playing for England has made it easier for him to settle despite the different training routines.
The younger is set to feature in both the EURO 2016 qualifier against Slovenia and the friendly against Scotland.
