Los Angeles - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a second half
goal on a brilliant solo effort as English giants Arsenal earned their second
win of their US tour by defeating Chivas Guadalajara 3-1.
Oxlade-Chamberlain scored just five minutes into the second
half, using a back heel flick to loose a Chivas defender, and 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.
