Gunners in International Action
Today’s the day, England are playing their first game of the competition against Iran. Tierney and Ødegaard have both already played friendlies for Scotland and Norway respectively, but who else from our team has gone to the World Cup? We have ten representatives this year; Thomas Partey for Ghana, Martinelli and Jesus for Brazil, Aaron Ramsdale, Bukayo Saka, and Ben White for England, William Saliba for France, Granit Xhaka for Switzerland, Takehiro Tomiyasu for Japan, and Matt Turner for the USA. The first lot in action is the aforementioned England vs Iran game, with Turner hopefully in action for the USA tonight vs Wales. Saliba’s France will be playing tomorrow against Australia. On Wednesday Tomiyasu will be in contention to start vs the Netherlands, and on Thursday Xhaka, Partey, and the Gabi’s will be playing.
