Arsenal opened their preseason campaign with a 2-0 victory over Australian side Sydney FC at the ANZ Stadium.
The Gunners took the lead through a header from veteran German centre-back Per Mertesacker on four minutes. England international Danny Welbeck missed a penalty kick.

However, the big moment Arsenal fans will have been waiting for happened on 83 minutes. Club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette came midway through the second half and made a quick impact.

Alex Iwobi cut the ball back to the striker, who fired home to seal the victory for the Gunners. Everybody connected with the Gunners will be happy that the striker opened his scoring account so early his career at the north London club.
