The job of marking Ronaldinho this evening will not fall on Emmanuel Eboue alone.
 
The 22-year-old defender will be making only his 26th start for Arsenal this evening when they face Barcelona in the Champions League Final. The Ivorian right back, who only moved from Belgian side Beveren in Janaury 2005, will be up against arguably the world's best player. But according to Arsène Wenger, Eboue will not have to shoulder the burden alone.
 
"It is a big game for Eboue because he plays against one of the most dangerous players," said the Arsenal manager. "But  we will not man mark Ronaldinho and I believe he will drift in the middle of the park. So I am convinced keeping him quiet will be more down to the team defending than Eboue's defending."
