Arsenal beat Fiorentina 3-0 at the Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina, United States to keep their 100 percent preseason friendly win record alive.
Eddie Nketiah bagged a brace and Joe Willock also got his name on the scoresheet in what turned out to be a comfortable victory for the Gunners.
USA Women’s World Cup winner Megan Rapinoe attended the game and met several Arsenal star names including Mesut Ozil.
The playmaker of Turkish origin has been compared to Rapinoe recently after dying his hair blonde.

And for everyone who wanted to see what they look like together well Rapinoe shared a photograph with Ozil and shared it on her Instagram.
Rapinoe wrote ‘game recognises game….hair game that is’. Ozil reposted the Instagram post on his stories.
I can definitely see the resemblance.
Since Ozil dyed his hair blonde Arsenal have won every game. I’m not suggesting the two are connected but it makes for an interesting statistic.
Arsenal have beat Colorado, Bayern Munich and Fiorentina on their US tour.
The Gunners will take on Real Madrid next on Wednesday at the FedExField stadium in Washington D.C.
