I think Arsene Wenger would probably have preferred it if the Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin had been given a little rest by his national manager, especially after the hard running 21-year old is yet to miss a minute of football in the Premier League or Champions League campaigns this season.
Hector Bellerin had to be subbed off during a qualifier for the Spain Under-21 side last week, and Arsenal had feared the worst about a potential ankle injury.
The right-back has been dropped back down to the Under-21 side after a campaign with the senior side at the European Championships, but was unable to complete the full 90 minutes against San Marino on Wednesday unfortunately.
While the Arsenal and England left back Kieran Gibbs is well aware that his chances to carry on his international career are suffering because of the lack of football he gets at club level, the player he is trying to replace in the Arsenal team could be forgiven for wondering what more he has to do.
I know that the Arsenal squad does still contain the France international right back Matthieu Debuchy, as the pictures on the Arsenal website of the players training before the Burnley match reminded us, while Rob Holding the young summer signing from Bolton Wanderers has played in the position as well as his more usual central defensive role.
It is not just the Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin who will be left at home scratching his head for the next two weeks, as his fellow Spaniard and Arsenal team mate Santi Cazorla has also been left out of the Spain national squad for the first international break of the new season.
I really hope that there is a perfectly good reason for the Arsenal and Spain international midfield star not being with his team mates at London Colney this week as Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff begin the preparations for next season with the start of pre-season training.
With the uncertainty still hanging around over the possible transfer to Arsenal of the England and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, along with the possibility that Arsene Wenger would like to add more than one new forward to the Arsenal squad this summer, there is still plenty of scope for us to look at the many Arsenal transfer rumours about potential striker targets.
By all accounts it appears that the Arsenal and Spain international star Hector Bellerin is pretty happy with the Gunners and is not pushing for a move away from the club, despite the many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that his excellent form over the last two seasons has drawn the attention of his boyhood club FC Barcelona.
