Sleeping father misses Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal

Ex-England winger Mark Chamberlain missed his son's goal against Brazil at the Maracana after falling asleep.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pulled England level after Fred's goal in Rio, before Wayne Rooney put Roy Hodgson's side into the lead, only for Paulinho to make it 2-2 late on.

After the game Chamberlain, part of the last England side to win in Brazil in 1984, told BBC Radio 5 live: "I didn't see it. I was dropping his mother off at the airport at 6am this morning so I fell asleep."

But he added: "I've had loads of texts saying it was a fantastic goal."
