Alexandre Lacazette scores on his Arsenal debut: Gunners fans are absolutely delighted”

Ryall (Green, min.64), Buijs (Bobo, min. 68), Zullo (Kuleski, min.45), Brillante (McIllhatton, min. 74), O'Neill, Lokolingoy (Zapata, min. 77), Brosque (Zuvela, min.45), Carney (Iredale, min.64), Simon (Flottmann, min.68).

The Gunners finally sealed victory seven minutes from time, substitute Alex Iwobi making great ground down the right and squaring for the onrushing Lacazette to time his run and slot home with a low finish.

"Pre-season is there for that, for me to understand how close they are". I just want to prepare well for the season and we will see later. Ozil's corner bounced off a Sydney player, before Mertesacker found the net brilliantly on the turn inside the six yard box.

Having already been linked with Marseille, Everton, West Ham and AC Milan, Giroud looks to have many options in front of him.

Giroud's future with the Gunners has been shrouded in doubt for some time and, following the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, a move away from the Emirates Stadium has been suggested. It was Nelson however that really stood out. He was keen to get on possession and looked very comfortable during his senior debut. Both are highly rated and will hopefully have more chances to show what they can do on this tour. Joshua Brillante burst past Mertesacker just after the half hour mark before forcing Petr Cech into a save.

Sydney FC goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne pressed his case for a starting spot this season for the defending A-League champions.

"Some of the players I've had in my career have turned 18 and it seems natural for them to be on the pitch".

Arsenal's other summer signing was deployed as one of Wenger's three centre-backs, a slight surprise given that Kolasinac is expected to play mainly as a left-back or wing-back.

"Technically, it also gives people the opportunity to see close up the professionalism of the overseas clubs and those clubs can also share some of their insights and playing and training techniques with local clubs and their players".
