Gabriel gets Brazil call up

New boy Gabriel has been called up to the Brazilian national squad for the first time for their upcoming game against Chile.

The two South American sides will meet at the Emirates next week, and the location of the game is likely to have had a bearing on his selection.

However, it’s a step forward for the former Villarreal player who joined the club in January. He replaces the injured David Luiz who stepped on multiple rakes and let out a juddering sigh each time it happened.

Since his arrival he’s made four appearances for the club and returned from a hamstring injury to take a place on the bench for the midweek win over Monaco.

The Wenger effect


Or maybe it’s the realisation that David Luiz isn’t any better when he’s fit than when he’s injured.


To be fair Luiz has a trait i will forever love. He will not be bullied by ANYONE. He is a leader. and he’s been in more episodes of simpsons than most lol

Luiz is a very good player. He’s been unfairly vilified in the media as much as Ozil.

Sideshow David



Love Simpsons references on arseblog its been an ongoing theme which I’ve enjoyed need to get ‘my eyes! zi goggles do nusssing!’ Involved somehow.

Go Gabriel! Don’t get injured!


And don’t injure Alexis


at least he wont get jet lag for this one


Can only improve his game and add to his confidence. Sweet.

Henry! Chance!! Goal!!!

The good part is that Gabriel and Alexis won’t have to travel

Totally deserved. Anyone who signs for arsenal should be selected for thier national side straight away.


So then we can lament every time they injured during interlul?

If you play for Arsenal and you are not called up to your national team, then you never will be. I can’t remember a first team player under Wenger who left Arsenal and got his first call-up elsewhere. Rather, many lose their place when they leave; ask Flamini.
I believe that if Arteta had been with us all the time he spent at Everton, he would be a Spanish international by now.

There is a paranoid part of me that thinks that Arsene’s players get called up to their respective national teams to aid the conspiracy of keeping half of the Arsenal side injured at all times.


Nordveit? Though he had been a Norwegian youth international with us…

Man Manny

“I can’t remember a FIRST-TEAM player under Wenger…” This is my point; Nordvedt was not a first-teamer. I only remember him in one pre-season.


with Chambers and Gabriel making debut with their national teams after joining arsenal, i think Bellerin will be the next arsenal to be called up for the first time with national team.


And he will be worth it too..Bellerin ‘s been my “Greatest Revelation of the season”

Crazy Gooner

Hopefully he doesn’t get injured…


I hope monreal gets a recall to the spanish squad. Boy he deserves it.


Nope it seems he didnt. #delbosqueout

Crazy Gooner

I don’t mind, at least he won’t get injured while being away.


Big fan of this guy from what we’ve seen so far, now if he can just copy everything Thiago Silva does when he trains with him we’ll be onto a winner for sure

We’ve won every game he’s played. #unstoppable.

Dreams can come true – Gabriel 🙂


At least this time they have a class, no-nonsense defender to avoid a bashing

naija gooner

He more than deserve it.
Something tells me that this guy will be a monster of a defender for us

What about Arteta??

It’s a shame Mikel Arteta hasn’t gotten a call up in recent years… or ever I believe? He is definitely deserving even if Spain have an abundance of diverse talent to choose from.

DE Gooner

I suppose now we know why he got the work permit. Arsenal knew he would be called up by Brazil (I don’t buy it that its only because of Luiz’s ‘injury’).
