Latest Arsenal international roundup ft Odegaard, Kiwior and Raya

Latest International Round up

As the international break continues, plenty of our Arsenal men are set to represent their countries for the second game of the break this week. Sunday night saw another three Arsenal players make appearances for their countries and here’s the latest news.

Martin Odegaard started and played a full 90 minutes for Norway as they took on fellow Arsenal teammate David Raya’s Spain as they looked to qualify for the 2024 Euro’s. Odegaard had a decent match but looked to be a bit lost in the middle of the pitch, and honestly just didn’t look like it was his day. Trying to create chances for his front line but couldn’t seem to break through Spain’s defence. Completing 27/29 passes throughout the game, Odegaard looked like he would be Norway’s best bet in creating a chance on goal but in the end couldn’t manage to do so. Raya made the Spanish bench but didn’t get any minutes in Spain’s 1-0 Victory over Norway.

Norway walking away defeated and ultimately with no way to qualify for next year’s Euro’s after finishing 3rd in the group stages. David Raya’s Spain have qualified though after topping Group A and Arsenal fans will be hoping we get to see a bit of him at next year’s tournament.

Jacob Kiwior also started and played a full 90 minutes in defence for Poland’s draw against Moldova last night in the 8th round of the Euro’s Qualification stages. A game that saw a lot of qualities from Kiwior, winning the ball back constantly for his team and pushing the midfield forward and wide to create more space for the Polish side. Completing 66/81 passes and moving the ball around the pitch well, Kiwior had an impressive game for his country. Poland sit 3rd in Group E on 10 points, a point off Czech Republic and 3 points off Albania with two games to go, so Group E will be a group to watch as anything could happen in the last few games.

An eventful international break for our Arsenal lads that is set to continue until mid-week. Tomiyasu is in contention to play against Tunisia, and we could also see Elneny make an appearance for Egypt against Algeria in their country’s friendly matches later tonight.

What’s your thoughts on the international break so far Gooners?

  1. Am happy that our captain saves his best performance for Arsenal, but it’s a big shame for Norway not to qualify for the Euro’s , They seems to have a mighty assemble squad.

    Jacob always looks great representing his country and many in that side am of the world am told, see him as the next big thing, so maybe Arsenal indeed have a gem they haven’t unleashed yet.

    Arsenal needs to give Smith Rowe games, for the kid to represent England in the Eùro’s 24.

    Raya although getting up in his football age’s he will get his chance between the sticks, the gaffer will ensure that.

  2. Pleasing to learn that Kwior is playing well for Poland in what I assume was the left centre back position.Difficult for him to break into the Arsenal side with Gabriel in his way but there may be a case for playing him or Tomi at left back against Chelsea with a view to keeping Sterling quiet.The prospect of Zinchenko facing his former team mate worries me as Sterling will be fully aware of his defensive weakness.

  3. Sterling plays mostly as a left winger, i’m sure Poch won’t deploy him at right wing against an opposition of our quality. agree he is one to mark out though along with cole who scored against us at the CS.

  4. I Feel sorry for Martin, he’s not gonna grace the upcoming Euro’s yet again! missed a chance along with haaland to bring them level when asking Spain’s defence questions. Age is still on his side, the hunger and anger will be useful to us in our bid to achieve things at Arsenal.

  5. Good performances by Odegaard and Kiwier. The most important thing is that all Arsenal players must return back injury free.
