Pre-season Friendly: Iwobi Shines As Arsenal Beat Western Sydney Wanderers

Arsenal took the lead just after the hour mark courtesy a tidy finish from wantaway French striker Olivier Giroud before Welsh star Aaron Ramsey added a second five minutes later. The Gunners added a third goal just before halftime as Nigerian international forward Alex Iwobi teed up Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny for a long range finish.
