[VIDEO GOALS] Arsenal 2-2 Boca Juniors: Squillaci & Djourou Errors Blow 2-goal Lead
Familiar problems reared their heads for Arsenal as defensive mistakes let Boca Juniors come from 2-0 down to rescue a 2-2 draw on day 1 of the Emirates Cup. Arsenal took the lead through Robin van Persie, summer signing Gervinho burst down the left and squared for the striker to slot home. Aaron Ramsey then doubled the lead just after half time, slamming home from the edge of the area. The Gunners were coasting but second half sub Squillaci gave away the ball 30 yards from goal which resulted in a Boca goal then only two minutes later, his central defensive partner Djourou failed to properly cut out a through ball resulting in the equaliser.
Boos rang out around the Emirates after both goals and at full-time, and the sooner Arsene Wenger addresses the problem position of centre back, the happier the Arsenal faithful will be. Watch the goals below..
