There are a few Arsenal stars in action this evening, with Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott among them. Both players have gotten themselves on the scoresheet for Spain and England respectively, with the pair clearly in confident mood following our dominant 3-0 win over Manchester United.
Walcott started on the right for England as expected, despite good work up front for Arsenal. He has spent most of the game centrally however, lingering in and around the box. Estonia are sat incredibly deep, so his pace has been nullified, but his movement has clearly paid off.
He got away from the defence to pick up a pass from Everton’s Ross Barkley, and turned to curl a finish around the goalkeeper and into the bottom right corner. 1-0.
Cazorla has been the bright spark in a fairly average Spanish side, who have unsurprisingly dominated European minnows Luxembourg, but failed to threaten hugely.
The Arsenal star has created a number of chances for his teammates, and came close with a couple of efforts before scoring. One particular effort crashed into the bar, and really should have found the back of the net.

He eventually got his goal though, with the ball falling fortuitously at his feet after a decent save from the keeper. Cazorla kept his composure, and slotted past the prone shot-stopper to make it 1-0.
Arsenal transfer news
Hopefully both men remain injury free during the international break, and return to Arsenal with their confidence boosted even further.
