A few years back, there was much made of Arsenal’s “English Core” that was supposed to be the backbone of the England team for this generation, but due to mostly injuries they have rarely all featured together for Roy Hodgson’s side. In fact in the last international break before the Euro2016 actually starts, only Danny Welbeck started for the Three Lions against Germany, and Theo Walcott only got a run out with the second string side against Holland a few days later.
Hector Bellerin has responded to all the speculation surrounding his future by pledging his future to Arsenal.
The full-back has emerged as one of the brightest young talents in the Premier League, and is rated as one of the best players in his position in England currently.
The Spanish international midfielder Santi Cazorla has been a big part of the way Arsenal have performed this season, controlling the central midfield area with his silky skills to add to the steel of Francis Coquelin. The little magician has done a brilliant job of proving that he can hold down that tricky role amid the ferocity and speed of English football.
The Arsenal winger-turned-striker Theo Walcott was given his chance in the middle of the action again in England’s 9th win in a row as they beat Estonia 2-0, with the Three Lions top scorer and captain, Wayne Rooney, absent from the squad-
For any Arsenal fans that do not keep up to speed on the goings on in Spain’s La Liga, you may not have heard of the Celta Vigo and Spain international forward Nolito, real name Manuel Agudo Duran. If so I would advise you to have a look at him over the next couple of weeks because the absence of Chelsea’s thuggish striker Diego Costa from the squad should see him start for Spain. And according to a report in The Mirror, Arsenal are weighing up a transfer move for him.
I am not too sure what the Arsenal and Spain international midfielder Santi Cazorla has to smile about at the minute. The 29-year old ballooned a couple of great chances to get his scoring off the mark against Sunderland miles over the bar.
What can Arsenal learn from Chile’s performance against Spain? by Alex
At the time of writing this Spain have just lost to Chile 2-0, which has got me wondering. How has this little nation from South America managed to keep out a very talented Spain side for 90 minutes?
Considering that Arsenal are supposedly intending to invest hundreds of millions in the transfer market this summer, it is a little disconcerting to find that the talented Spaniard Santi Cazorla could be interested in listening to offers after the World Cup ends in Brazil.
