20 years old Mexican Carlos Vela got 10 minutes of football, as his club Arsenal could shut down Premier League side Bolton Wanderers two times in four days.
In the away clash at the Reebok Stadium on last Sunday, Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger sent Carlos on after 82 minutes, so that he had a short run out with two good actions, as he got the ball on the right hand side to force a run through the middle, as well as he turned inside from the left flank to fire a left footer from the 18 yard box, but the ball was cleared by Bolton’s defense.
Then in the home match at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, Vela got two minutes, as he was brought on for Tomas Rosicky, but that was enough to show a little bit of glimpses, as Eduardo Da Silva played a through ball to the young Mexican, but Vela failed with his effort just a foot wide into the side of the net.
Next up for the Mexican is a away trip to the Britannia Stadium, when the Gunners take on Stoke City on Sunday. Hopefully Carlos will get there some more minutes from Mr. Wenger.
