Arsenal (London) thrash Benfica (Lisbon) 5-2 in friendly

Emirates Cup friendly

Theo Walcott scored twice in the first half before Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi and a Lisandro López own goal sealed an emphatic pre-season victory

So after an end-to-end first half with two Theo Walcott goals, but shoddy defending allowing Benfica to go in at 2-2, Arsenal moved through the gears in the second half to record an impressive pre-season result.

Lisandro Lopez’s unfortunate own goal put Arsenal back in front, with fine strikes from Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi adding gloss. Arsène Wenger will be feeling better about the Sánchez situation after that attacking display.

Arsenal take on Sevilla tomorrow ………….
