Spanish friendlies

Arsenal 1 – Sevilla 1 (Amsterdam Tournament, August 9, 2008) (Longer highlights here.) Arsenal’s Carlos Vela opened the scoring after just four minutes by bursting down on the Sevilla goal from the inside left position and firing low into the far corner. Arsene Wenger once again fielded a young inexperienced team, and Sevilla opened them up on several occasions without finding a route past Fabianski. (First half highlights here.) Javier Chevanton tapped home the equaliser with ten minutes to go. (See the trophy celebrations here.)
