Our international stars were looking to take the impressive form at the club into their respective national sides with Arsene Wenger’s men going strong in the Premier League.
The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil featured heavily over the weekend, all of whom enjoyed impressive performances.
Here are their best bits:
Arsenal transfer news
Alexis Sanchez vs Brazil

In familiar surroundings at the Emirates Stadium, Alexis brought out the party tricks against Brazil but couldn’t stop his side losing 1-0. If this was indeed a battle between Alexis and Neymar, our Chilean star definitely came out on top, although that will be little consolation to the South American.
Aaron Ramsey vs Israel
Later revealing that his nan passed away hours before the game (via BBC Sport), Ramsey’s performance was sensational as he combined with fellow Welsh star Gareth Bale.
A clever goal and a wonderful assist continues Ramsey’s form where he’s scored three in his last two for us.
Olivier Giroud vs Denmark
The most in-form player in the Premier League, Giroud can’t stop hitting the back of the net at the moment and gave Didier Deschamps a selection headache with a fierce effort to down Denmark
Mesut Ozil vs Georgia
He may have made the headlines for all the wrong reasons last week, but the focus was back on Ozil’s football and he capped off a solid game with a textbook assist for Thomas Muller.
