Seven games into the 2016 Euros and seven of our players have been involved in six of them.
Everyone was interested in seeing Granit Xhaka play for Switzerland and he put in an assured performance, he didn’t do anything special but showed his potential for passing accurately. He reminded me somewhat of Elneny so I’m fairly confident that they will be cover for each other in the Arsenal team.
I didn’t see the Welsh game but by all accounts Ramsey didn’t have a great game for Wales. Giroud was the first Gunner to get on a score sheet in the French win against Romania and looked good, Kos was fairly OK in defence considering he rarely plays alongside Rami. Wilshere wasn’t given long enough on the pitch for England so we’ll have to wait and see if he is selected for the game against Wales.
I didn’t see the Polish game either so can’t say how Chezzer played but they kept a clean sheet against Northern Ireland.
Finally, last night we saw Ozil in action for the Germans and as per usual, he was fairly anonymous until he put in a pin point pass to create their second goal, showing that he is the King of assists. Schweinsteiger pointed to where he wanted the ball and Ozil obliged, it was excellent. He should have got on the scoresheet as well but fluffed his lines when one- on – one with the keeper.
So how does it all leave the Arsenal stats………………
Clean sheets 3
Not bad so far, we have Cech and Rosicky playing today and we can also have a butchers at one of our possible targets, Morata playing for Spain.
In the meantime in France, the French are still revolting, there is a lot of debate about who started the fights in Marseille and although French reporters are saying the Russians brought a well organised army of hooligans, they have yet to blame French supporters in Marseille for starting the first confrontations outside bars in the Old Port.
