SYDNEY FC 0 ARSENAL 2: LACAZETTE SCORES ON DREAM DEBUT
Arsenal recorded a comfortable victory over Sydney FC to begin their pre-season campaign, with Alexandre Lacazette making a dream debut.
Alexandre Lacazette made a stunning start to his Arsenal career by scoring on his debut to wrap up a 2-0 victory over Sydney FC.
The striker netted within 15 minutes of coming off the substitutes’ bench late on at a sold-out ANZ Stadium to mark his arrival for a club-record fee in style.
It had looked until that point that a fourth-minute strike from Per Mertesacker, magnificent during the FA Cup final in his last Gunners appearance, would be the only goal of the game.
