Henri Lansbury - Arsenal's goalkeeping problems solved?

Henri Lansbury could be the solution to Arsenal's so-called goalkeeping problems after looking impressive for England u21's last night.

Lansbury was called upon as a makeshift keeper after Jason Steele, who came on a as second-half substitute, was sent off for a professional foul on Boris Vukcevic. Unfortunately, his first task was to concede the resultant penalty, but didn't let in any more after that during a solid 30 minute performance and made several good saves.

Manager Stuart Pearce was suitably impressed:
"Henri put himself forward and I thought he was outstanding. Everything that went to him he handled very well. We might have found another goalkeeper tonight."
 Unfortunately, despite Lansbury's best efforts, England lost 2-0 to Germany.
