An amusing moment was caught on camera following Arsenal’s pre-season matchup with Bayern Munich yesterday afternoon.
The European giants went head-to-head in an International Champions Cup tie in China yesterday, with Arsene Wenger’s side eventually emerging victorious following a penalty shootout.
The game itself had ended all-square after 90 minutes in the sweltering Shanghai heat, with Alex Iwobi’s header deep into injury-time cancelling out an early Robert Lewandowski penalty.
The shootout itself saw young goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez prove the hero for the Premier League side, saving two penalties to guide his side to victory.
Only one Arsenal player missed a spot-kick, in the form of Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny, a stat which Gunners teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keenly alluded to following the match.

As can be seen from the caption of the clip, Liverpool fans have immediately taken the Ox’s claim that ‘now (new Reds signing) Mohamed Salah is the king of Egypt for sure‘ as a hint that he is interested in a move to Anfield, following months of speculation that Jurgen Klopp is eager to bring the English winger to Merseyside.
