Alexis plays full 90 minutes on bad night for Arsenal players

All Arsenal fans will now breathe a collective sigh of relief as Alexis Sanchez has come through his final game of this break, although it was a bad-tempered game (as it always is when you play Uruguay) and the Gunners superstar had to play the full 90 minutes for the second time in four days and lost this one 3-0.

There is no word on him being tired or injured after the game, but he certainly is not happy with Uruguay, who Chile beat 1-0 last time they met in the Copa America, which was also a very feisty occasion. Sanchez said on Instagram after the game: “You need to know how to win and how to lose and I speak when I win and when I lose,” he wrote.

“But what annoys me about past and present and other Uruguayan players … is that they speak without acknowledging that they’ve lost.

“Today we lost and I congratulate them … it’s goodbye from the champions of the Americas.”

It wasn’t really a good international night for the Gunners as Petr Cech’s Czech Republic also lost to Poland, although our newest superstar did equal the record for the most-capped Czech player….

Kieran Gibbs played well as England beat our French players Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, but we are all just glad the game went ahead and finished without incident. Germany v Holland was not so lucky as the game was called off and the crowd evacuated after police discovered a truck bomb disguised as an ambulance outside the ground in Hanover.

I am wondering how much longer this reign of terror is going to go on, and whether fans will still consider it safe to even go to live matches any more. Big crowds are easy targets….

    We are living in strange times. It was a weird football night where Zlatan stole the show. France seemed not to be connected to the game. Not a lot of good news these days. Be strong people.
    It is a sad day for the world of sports as Jonah Lomu passed away. Rest in peace, kindest giant ever.

    phew! no problem let him be benched for westbrom and hope the other lads step up. Let’s just get the 3 points.

    I’m glad we seem to have escaped with no injuries from this interlull, but I can’t stop thinking about what would have happened if that truck bomb had exploded as the crowds were pouring out after the game. It would have been utter devastation. Scary.

    Sorry bro it wasn’t your night but i love your spirit in times of loss and winnings.
    I don’t go to pitch to watch games but after reading Germany’s match was cancelled because another bomb was discovered am worried for the world at large, killing innocent people going on their lives happily supporting their teams is just barbaric and inhuman.
    well first Grateful to God none of them got hurt, am getting tired of this killings and bombings, I’ve seen more and too much in Nigeria here this past years, its like i just want to be away from the world and live in my own safe imaginative world, but then again it’s why i am human, am to face pains and cry and survive this world where the wicked and heartless go after the innocent and helpless. my prayer is for the whole world,may God keep us all safe and protect us from these wicked souls

    best form of revenge is happiness,
    so lets all turn our minds back to the beautiful game of football and show all those haters that we are all one,

    now footbal= if Sanchez was wiling to play 90mnt then he can park his ass on the bench at the weekend and come on for a few mnts end of the game to get some match fitness for the CL game on Tuesday

    1. Budd says:

      I reckon we can beat Zagreb even if Sanchez is not playing.

      1. Tas says:

        I just think if they see a strong bench their moral will be more demolished if we get ahead that is

  7. Bill William says:

    Let’s welcome our players back to Emirates. Let it be negative and positive motivation for those who have lost and won respectively to get 3 points in the next game. Meanwhile police should work hard to keep peace as we enjoy ourselves with football.
