Arsenal to compete in Florida Cup in July 

Florida Cup announcement

Our men’s first team will be travelling to the United States in July to compete in the seventh edition of the Florida Cup as part of our preparations ahead of the 2021/22 season. 

We’ll be taking part in a four-team tournament in Orlando alongside Premier League rivals Everton, Serie A champions Inter Milan, and Colombian side Millonarios. 
We’ll face Inter Milan on Sunday, July 25 with Everton taking on Millonarios on the same day. The winners will play in the Florida Cup final on Wednesday, July 28, with the other two sides playing each other on the same day. 
All matches will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. This multi-sport venue hosted five matches during the 1994 World Cup and nine men’s and women’s matches during the 1996 Olympic Games. The stadium is home to several US college teams and is also a candidate to host games during the 2026 World Cup. 
The two matches come during a week-long training camp in Florida from July 21 to 28. This follows our trip to Scotland for a training camp in Edinburgh, with previously announced fixtures against Hibernian and Rangers on Tuesday, July 13 and Saturday, July 17 respectively. 
Mikel Arteta, said: “We’re very pleased to see our pre-season plans ramping up with the announcement of our trip to the United States to take part in the Florida Cup. It will be great for our first-team squad to play two games in front of our US-based fans and the tournament features three good sides that will provide strong opposition. The training and matchday facilities in Orlando will provide a first-class environment for our preparations for next season.”
Technical director Edu, added: “The Florida Cup matches, together with the Orlando training camp, will provide Mikel and the squad with an excellent level of preparation as we focus on next season. This adds to our already announced matches and training preparations in Scotland. We look forward to confirming further plans for our pre-season very soon.”

To ensure the safety of the players, staff, officials and supporters, all COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines will be adhered to throughout the trip.  


Euro 2020: Xhaka suffers defeat to Italy

Granit Xhaka was our first Gunner to play his second group-stage game at Euro 2020, for Switzerland against Italy. 

Our 28-year-old retained his place in midfield alongside Remo Freuler but despite making more tackles than anyone else on the pitch, was unable to help his country avoid defeat to the Group A leaders.

Manuel Locatelli struck either side of half-time to give the hosts a commanding lead in Rome, before Ciro Immobile secured back-to-back wins for Roberto Mancini's side with an 89th-minute goal.

Xhaka - who also had the most touches and completed the most passes in the Italian capital - is now in need of a win in his final group-stage game, against bottom-placed Turkey on Sunday, June 20. Switzerland also need Wales to drop points against Italy to stand a chance of reaching the knock-out stage. 

The next Arsenal involvement at Euro 2020 comes in Group D, with Bukayo Saka's England hosting Kieran Tierney's Scotland at Wembley. Saka was an unused substitute in the Three Lions' win over Croatia, while Tierney missed Scotland's opening-day defeat to Czech Republic, but Steve Clarke is expecting our No 3 to return in time for Friday's 8pm kick-off in north-west London.
