20-year-old Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah struck late on to give Arsenal a win over Bayern Munich in Los Angeles in the early hours of this morning.
Another academy product, Tyreece John-Jules, was the provider after a neat interchange with Calum Chambers. The match looked as though it would go to penalties after Robert Lewandowski converted a Serge Gnabry cross but it was Knetiah on hand to win it late for the Gunners.
Arsenal debuted their new Adidas bruised banana kit in the friendly clash. As expected, Unai Emery brought his established names back for the first of three International Champions Cup games in the USA.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started to the right of Alex Lacazette with Mesut Ozil in behind. Joe Willock was given a start alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield and Bernd Leno started in goal.
