TEAM – Arsenal vs Vietnam: Wenger Names Strong XI
Arsenal play their second pre-season game of this summers tour of the Far East as we take on Vietnam on Wednesday afternoon.
We kicked off our pre-season with a comfortable 7-0 win over an Indonesian All Star XI on Sunday so hopefully today’s game will be a slightly sterner test for the players.
Arsene Wenger has named a much stronger starting eleven for today’s clash with Gnarby the only player starting who’s not considered a first team squad regular. The likes of Szczesny, Koscielny,Rosicky, Giroud and Podolski all come in while Sagna also starts at centre-back.
Here’s the team:
Szczesny, Jenkinson, Sagna, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gnabry, Giroud, Podolski
Subs: Fabianski, Martinez, Miquel, Mertesacker, Aneke, Ramsey, Walcott, Akpom, Wilshere, Zelalem, Ryo, Eisfeld, Olsson
