Saka shines in Qatar 0

Posted on November 22, 2022 by Harry Kettle

England fans rejoiced last night as the Three Lions kickstarted their World Cup campaign in style.

They arrived in Qatar with a whole lot of confidence and as one of the favourites to win the entire tournament. When put up against Iran, they made sure to let the world know what they were about.

England stuck six goals past Iran in a 6-2 thrashing and part of the scoresheet was the one and only Bukayo Saka.

The youngster was on fire throughout the course of his time on the pitch and that included him scoring a brace, continuing to prove just how effective he is in front of goal.

Arsenal fans get behind England ahead of World Cup 0

Arsenal have a parade of players representing them at this year’s World Cup but as is the nature of the English media, fewer will have quite as many eyes on them as Bukayo Saka, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale.

This trio will hope to have a big role to play within the context of the biggest sporting event on the planet, although they may not all start 100% of the time.

The Three Lions will get their campaign underway later today and they’ll do so against Iran, with Gunners supporters around the world hoping that all three can assist England in getting off to a bright start.

Four Arsenal players capture Euros glory 0

Leah Williamson, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Nikita Parris, Beth Mead.

These four women, and Arsenal players, will go down in history after they were able to help lead the England national team to European championship glory against Germany in the final at Wembley last night.

It was one of those pinch me moments as the Lionesses finally got this country over the line in a major international tournament, something their male counterparts failed to do last summer – apologies for bringing up such a horrendous moment in all of our lives, but it’s true.

Beth Mead nets hat-trick for England 0

It’s always great to see representatives of Arsenal Football Club do well on the international stage but for some reason, that’s usually concentrated on the men’s side of things.

In reality there’s often a lot to get excited about in women’s football, too, especially in the midst of the ongoing UEFA Euro 2022 tournament that’s taking place across England.

The Lionesses have impressed thus far and thanks to an 8-0 demolition of Norway earlier this week, they’ve officially booked their place in the quarter-finals with Beth Mead having a huge role to play in that courtesy of her hat-trick.

White pulls out of England squad 0

Posted on May 31, 2022 by Harry Kettle

As confirmed by BBC, Gunners defender Ben White – better known as Benjamin White following that now-viral interview – has had to pull out of the England squad due to injury and will continue his rehabilitation with the club.

The 24-year-old was originally named in the squad by manager Gareth Southgate but has been judged to not be fit enough to take part in proceedings moving forward.

The hamstring issue has ensured he’ll have to sit this set of games out with Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramdsale both also being selected from Arsenal’s camp.

Partey heading to World Cup 0

Posted on March 30, 2022 by Harry Kettle

It’s that time of year when a parade of nations are beginning to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, which takes place this November in Qatar.

There’s a lot to unpack in terms of who’s already qualified and what’s to come but today, we want to focus on Thomas Partey.

Arsenal’s electric midfielder opened the scoring for Ghana last night in their qualifier against Nigeria and in doing so, essentially scored the goal that took them through to the finals.

Ghana missed out on the World Cup in 2018 and will be heading to the big dance for the first time in eight years alongside Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco and Cameroon.

Omar Rekik receives Tunisia callup for AFCON 0

Arsenal youngster Omar Rekik has been called up to represent Tunisia at the upcoming African Cup of Nations, played from January 9th to February 6th. His country will start its involvement in the tournament in Cameroon on January 12th against Mali in Group F, and continue with a clash against Mauritania on the 16th, before closing the group stage against Gambia four days later.

According to, Rekik was one of the youngsters set to be sent out on loan to gain some first-team experience in the second half of the season, but this callup, which obviously represents important recognition of his impressive performances for Arsenal’s Under-23 side, changed that.

Mixed fortunes for six non-English international Gunners 0

Posted on November 17, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Apart from Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Aaron Ramsdale, who all played their part in England’s 10-goal thrashing of San Marino on Monday, five other Gunners represented their respective countries during this international break, so let’s take a brief look at how they fared.

Norway drew 0-0 at home against Latvia and lost 2-0 away to Netherlands, with Martin Odegaard playing the full 90 minutes on both occasions. The 23-year-old attacking midfielder will have been disappointed with what his team have done, finishing third in Group G behind Netherlands and Turkey. It means they won’t be playing at the World Cup next year.

Arsenal trio impress for England 0

Posted on November 16, 2021 by Harry Kettle

It was another impressive night at the office for the England national team as they ran out 10-0 winners over minnows San Marino – securing qualification for next year’s World Cup in the process. It was the kind of result that was never going to be in doubt and while San Marino showed heart in places, this was embarrassingly easy for the Three Lions.

The big news for Arsenal fans, though, is how well the three Gunners players in the squad performed. Aaron Ramsdale kept a clean sheet in goal, Emile Smith Rowe scored in the 58th minute and Bukayo Saka put the final nail in the coffin in the 79th minute.

Smith Rowe earns first England call-up 0

Posted on November 10, 2021 by Harry Kettle

There are many defining moments in a player’s career that they’ll look back on forever, and one of them is when you’re called up for international duty for the first time. It serves as proof that, in the eyes of the national team manager, you’re one of the very best in the game from your home country.

We already knew that Aaron Ramsdale and Bukayo Saka would be taking part in England’s international festivities in the next few weeks and now, through a twist of fate, Emile Smith Rowe will also be part of the equation.
