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!

Young 21 years old Carlos Vela has sent a message to his home country Mexico today, as he converted calmly and with great composure a lovely Cesc Fabregas delivery to make it 4:1 for the Gunners against the Trotters.
The Mexican has received really bad treating by his fellow natives as well as the Mexican press in the last week , especially the latter ones have produced stories which are really far from reality. According to close friends of the Cancun native: Carlos has never said that he feels jealous because of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, that stories are fictional. Actually that media situation put Carlos into a bad light which has just the target to damage his career.
Carlitos watched the first half from the bench, but he should get his chance as Arsene Wenger ordered him to the sidelines after the break for the warming up program alongside fellow teammates Abou Diaby and Samir Nasri.
Vela was then introduced with just 11 minutes on the clock and he showed immediately on the substitution that he loves to play for Arsenal, as his smile was back on his face. Vela went on for Marouane Chamakh and played for a few moments in his prefered striker role. He showed great desire with good passing and he even won a ball back where Arsenal lost possession. The magic moment came then as the Gunners started a miracle move where they completed unbelievable 24 passes in row, so that Fabregas was finally able to pick up Vela through the middle with a very smart pass and “El Bombardero” kept composure and slotted the ball past Bolton’s goalkeeper Bogdan into the net.
You could really see how many stones have fallen from Carlos heart as he celebrated his goal with the Arsenal fans and his teammates.
