Arsenal in Singapore: Day three round-up

The whole squad were in training during the morning, though the session was notably lighter for those who would be involved in the match against the Singapore Select XI later in the evening.

However, for those not expected to be in action until Saturday, the intensity was stepped up as they completed a third session in just over 24 hours.




Olivier Giroud, Mikel Arteta, Calum Chambers, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey were among those who jumped straight into the main hotel swimming pool after training, playing head tennis in front of on-looking holiday-makers. Watch the action by clicking the link.

Liam Brady was the guest of honour at Molly Roffey's pub as he entertained Arsenal fans from all over the world, at the home of the Singapore Supporters Club.
The Gunners legend was on top form, reminiscing about the old days and giving his thoughts on the current youngsters. "Chris Willock has the natural ability to go a long way in the game," he said.

Finally it was time for some football. The players were at the Singapore National Stadium in time to catch the end of the other Barclays Asia Trophy semi-final, which Everton won on penalties after a goalless draw.



The atmosphere ramped up when Arsenal took to the field at 8.30pm local time to take on the Singapore Select XI. Chuba Akpom was the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick in the 4-0 win. It was also a big night for Dan Crowley and Alex Iwobi - who made their first appearances for the first-team.



After the game Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arsène Wenger gave a press conference, while Hector Bellerin and Chuba spoke to Arsenal Player. "It's nice to get an assist in the first game," Hector said. "It's a beautiful stadium and a beautiful country."
Then after chatting with some of the Singapore players - many of whom were big Arsenal fans themselves - it was all on to the bus and back to the team hotel.
