It’s been a good start for two of Arsenal players at the Rio Olympics. Firstly, Serge Gnabry came off the bench to score for Germany in their 2-2 draw with Mexico.
Then, new signing Takuma Asano got on the scoresheet with a deft close range finish to make it 5-3.
It almost sparked a comeback as the game finished 5-4. They next play Sweden who drew 2-2 with Colombia last night.
Earlier the 21 year old spoke about his delight at joining the Gunners, although it is expected that he’ll spend the season on loan unless he is granted a special talent visa. He lacks the international caps to qualify under the current regulations.
