Bendtner Grabs A Brace As Arsenal Win Convincingly In Pre Season
Arsenal played the 3rd Pre Season friendly of the campaign with a short trip from Austria to Hungary to face Hungarian side Haladas. Arsenal opened the scoring in the 17th minute through our featured player Nicklas Bendtner, it was a great cross from Armand Traore and Bendtner done really well to direct his header back across the goal into the bottom corner it was 0-1 to The Arsenal.
Arsenal then doubled their lead 7 minutes later Eduardo was on hand to a Nicklas Bendtner pass to fire home typically it was a good finish from the Brazilian born Croatia striker. Eduardo then doubled his tally directly from a set piece it was now 0-3 to the visitors. Nicklas then got his 4th goal of pre-season in 2 games, Jack Wilshere with a nice reverse pass and Bendtner curling it around the keeper it was a textbook finish fomr the Dane.
In the second half Arsenal made a whole host of changes, Bendtner being one of them, he was replaced by dutchman Robin Van Persie. Ironically, Bendtner would be the man too setup the next goal, Arsenal taking advantage of the pre season rule ” role on-role off” substitutes. Substitute Philippe Senderos long ball over the top found the on running Bendtner who rounded the keeper. Van Persie would fire the penalty into the top corner and it was now 0-5 to Arsenal.
It finished that way another good run out for Bendtner and Arsenal, but a sterner test will come this Wednesday when Arsenal face German Bundesliga outfit Hannover.
Bendtner Watch: 9
Bendtner looked very lively today, not just his well taken goals but his movement off the ball was top class. Nick’s first goal was a typical centre forward’s header running across the goal and directing it into the bottom corner. He also setup Eduardo for the second goal with a nice pass with the outside of the boot.
