Good News For Wenger As Vela Plays Only 17 Minutes For Mexico

Young Arsenal frontman Carlos Vela was introduced for his good friend Giovani Dos Santos with just 17 minutes on the clock in Mexico’s one nil drama victory over South American outfit Colombia.

That makes sure for Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger that the 21 years old will come back to London without any knock and injury, so that he will be available for Saturday’s Premier League encounter with the Bolton Wanderers at Emirates Stadium.

Vela had some decent runs in his short amount of playing time but he could celebrate the game winning goal with Elias Hernandez in the 89th minute.

Wenger will be very happy to have the Mexican back for the clash after bad news about Robin van Persie (out for about 6 weeks) and last night’s injury to Theo Walcott who turned  his right ankle dangerously, so that people thought that it was broken . With already Nicklas Bendtner and Samir Nasri on the injury list Wenger has to continue the race for the title with the available squad.
