21 years old Mexican striker Carlos Vela has followed the Champions League clash on Tuesday night in the stands with fellow teammate Cesc Fabregas.
Vela was not available to help the Gunners to overcome a one nil deficit against Porto Football Club after returning from international duty with a short-term injury.
The Mexican limped off injured in Mexico’s friendly with New Zealand, which was in the end just a very good reaction of Carlos to secure his Gunner chance, so that he told Mexican Coach Javier Aguirre to take him off to avoid a longer term injury.
Vela saw a great performance from his teammates, as the Gunners totally destroyed Porto by 5:0 in the Champions League Last 16 Round 2 leg, thanks to a hat-trick by Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner, as well as an impressive Samir Nasri run trough the defense.
Carlos is looking forward to feature on weekend at Hull, but there are some doubts that he will be fit for the important Premier League encounter.
