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.

Carlos Vela Shows His Quality In Legia Warsaw Clash

New number 11 Carlos Vela has shown in Arsenal’s last pre season meeting a very fine performance as the Gunners travelled to Warsaw for Legia’s celebration of their “New Legion Stadium”.

The match finished in a very crazy 11 goal contest, where the Polish outfit had a dominating 3:0 lead, but the Gunners were able to fight back with a fantastic comeback, thanks to a very well second half by Arsenal winger Carlos Vela.

The Mexican showed a fantastic display with great movements as well as his pace and his newly acquired strength and power forced several problems for Legia’s back-line.

As we said before, Carlitos had a really special tough body workout in the training camp in Austria and finally it should give him now maybe the opportunity to settle into this strong Arsenal front row. Actually he looks very lively on the left-wing, which is probably the position where Arsene Wenger wants to play “El Bombardero”.
