Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky have returned to action in a 3-1 win for the U21s over Newcastle.
The goals came from Dan Crowley, Stephy Mavididi, and Serge Gnabry, but all eyes were on the first team players.
Wilshere played 65 minutes, Rosicky 45, as they make their way to full fitness and first team football. There have been no reports of post-game problems, and hopefully this is the first step for both of them to pull on a first team shirt again.
Watch the goals here.
Speaking after the game, Wilshere spoke about his desire to prove his fitness before this summer’s European Championships.
“I’ve said before, I want really to go to the Euros,” he said. “So I know I have to get back into the Arsenal team and show the manager what I can do.”
Let’s hope he can do that.
