Mexican sensation Carlos Vela scored twice as Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side destroyed Portuguese outfit SC Braga last evening at Emirates Stadium by 6:0. Skipper Cesc Fabregas got two as well with Chamakh as well as Arshavin on the scoring board.
The 21 years old already scored on the weekend against Bolton as he slotted home calmly a fantastic Cesc Fabregas chip pass.
That is now 3 Goals in 2 matches with only 40 minutes of match time. Hell yeah you can say whatever you want about the young talented striker, but this is just an amazing scoring quote.
Vela was introduced with 27 minutes on the clock for Moroccan International Marouane Chamakh and was again just 6 minutes on the pitch as he make it 5:0 for the Gunners.
Russian International Andrey Arshavin did a perfectly timed pass for the Mexican inside the area and Carlos was able to take a lovely little dink over Braga goalkeeper Felipe into the net.
Minutes later Carlitos tried to fed Cesc Fabregas, but his pass was unfortunately intercepted.
With 6 minutes remaining Vela had his second as Fabregas picked a long ball out of the air to clip a little pass to Vela, so that the Cancun native cleverly beat Felipe on the near post with a left footer.
After the match Wenger was impressed by Vela’s performance and admitted in the post match press conference:
“He is an outstanding finisher who worked very hard this summer and he continues to improve. He is 21 years old and it is a fantastic quality.”
Next up for Carlitos is the Premier League encounter at Sunderland on Saturday afternoon!
