Lacazette scores first Arsenal goal from Iwobi assist

14 July 2017

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck should have given Sydney FC the ball back rather than try to score a penalty in their pre-season match at ANZ Stadium.

Lacazette was one of those introduced and the France forward needed just 15 minutes to seal his first Arsenal appearance with a goal, slotting home Alex Iwobi's low cross to wrap up the win.

"You could see that he was happy but overall what we were looking for was to play at pace and to develop our collective game".

Walcott's strike was then unconvincingly kept out by Redmayne, but Sydney almost levelled against the run of play when Josh Brillante surged past Mertesacker and forced Petr Cech to keep out his low strike, Matt Simon clipping the outside of post from a tight angle on the rebound.

US Men's National Team Plays Poorly in Gold Cup Opener
Juan Agudelo (Off 86′) - 6 - Brighter than his compatriots in the first half, his work out left in the second was significant. Despite a suffocating defense, the American's inconsistent offense couldn't find the back of the net against Martinique.

Arsenal fans will hope the no-fuss finish is a taste of what is come but a glimpse of his all-round game, albeit against modest opposition, was tantalising, too.

"Last year we set a very high standard for ourselves so it's about using that as a base for this year", said Brosque.

"I just want to prepare well for the season and we will see later".

"It would hit the team quite hard if he left because he's a player who always delivers", Ozil said.

Bank of Canada makes sharp jump in interest rates
This was the first rate hike in Canada in the last 10 years but the BOC had signalled it very clearly more than a month back. That compared with its April forecast for growth of 2.6 per cent this year, 1.9 per cent next year and 1.8 per cent in 2019.

Although the criticism is understandable, as last season was preceded by a campaign which saw the German assist 19 goals and score 8 in all competitions. Giroud's static target man style does not fit particularly well for the Gunners and can at times make the team bog down in attack as well as neutering their threat on the counter attack. But his thoughts at the moment are on club and not country. The Frenchman's arrival has prompted Olivier Giroud to question his own future. The lively 17-year-old Reiss Nelson was a handful on the right flank while fellow young debutant Joe Willock slalomed through Sydney's defence.

The 30-year-old Frenchman admitted earlier this week that his future at Arsenal is under the scanner, but refused to provide any guarantees either way about his situation at the Emirates. Everton have already secured the return of Wayne Rooney, and had already signed Sandro, so perhaps Giroud would be seen as too near the mould of the other two.

Another added: "Lacazette off the mark".

GeekWire: Prime Day was Amazon's 'biggest shopping event' ever
