International wrap.....

Arsenal players were on duty this weekend, and although I was delighted that it gives a chance for some of our players to come back from injury, it also left a fear in me as Arsenal players are injury prone at best, but during internationals, they are made of glass. You don't agree....well you are wrong, Van Persie and Walcott have a huge history with legs like fine china.

Nicklas Bendtner went off injured in training but was still able to complete the 90minutes in Denmark's 1-1 draw with Norway. Marouane Chamakh played for Morocco against Algeria, but was unable to prevent a 1-0 defeat in their Afcon qualifier. As for our other gifted striker, who I think is close to the form of his life was on the score sheet as Holland crushed Hungary 4-0, he completed the full 90min and thank goodness he did not get injured.

Aaron Ramsey captained Wales as he met Jack Wilshere and England in a British clash in Cardiff on Saturday and it was a battle of the future two best midfield pairing in the world. Jack's England looked in control the entire game with a new 4-3-3 formation and won 2-0. The Capello clown actually showed some brains and had their best team on the park and showed that they are much like the South African cricket side, brilliant in friendlies and qualifiers but chokers in World Cups.
Jack was very impressive in the midfield and we can shed a tear of Joy as Arsenals favorite son showed his class.

France defeated Luxembourg 2-0 and saw Nasri and Sagna in action, Nasri was named captain(yet another Arsenal international captain, but yet we have no leader at Arsenal) and supplied the cross for the opening goal, Clichy did not see any game time, but I'm sure he will in the friendly mid-week.
Rosicky the Clown played for the Czechs as Spain snatched a 2-1 victory from their grasp, that saw the Barca man Villa score a brace. Mr Russia Arshavin played 90minutes in their 0-0 draw to Armenia(who....just jokes,but really)
Eboue's Ivory Coast were victorious as Drogba netted a brace to give them a win over Benin.
Lastly it saw Vela (who is currently on loan as West Brom) and Mexico take on Paraguay and saw them win 3-1 and mow take on Venezuela this week.

So all in all a successful weekend for Arsenal players and no injuries which is the important thing, lets just hope they come back and bring with them a drive for victory.
But hey I'm not Biased.......
