Saka's unexpected Golden Boot win, Saliba's defeat, and Turner's Bale-denied shot as the latest Arsenal World Cup news

The 2022 World Cup has officially begun, as the 10 representatives from Arsenal took part for the first time on day two. The Gunners stars' preparations for the tournament in Qatar will be covered, and they will also give updates on those who are still in training and preparing for their games while also documenting the performances of those who play for their various national teams each day. It's reasonable to say that Monday's World Cup action will be in Arsenal supporters' minds for a very long time since one very well-liked first-team player in particular provided the ideal rebuttal to what transpired during the Euro 2020 final penalty shootout 16 months ago. Naturally, we begin with Bukayo Saka, who made his World Cup debut by scoring twice as England beat Iran 6-2. His brace puts him in unexpected contention for the Golden Boot. During the BBC's post-game analysis, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand gave him great praise, saying, "He's lethal, sitting at the top of the league with Arsenal confidence must be high." "Sterling's skill slows the defender down and shows patience once more. It's a fantastic finish from a guy who appeared to have encountered this scenario numerous times over his career. I've witnessed it and experienced it firsthand when guys rush to get the shot off and scuff. That was calm and collected." Matt Turner made his first start for club or country since October 20 in the final game of the day, and on his comeback, he was about ten minutes away from maintaining a clean sheet. However, Gareth Bale, a former Real Madrid and Tottenham player, had other plans for the penalty spot. Even though the Arsenal goalkeeper made the right guess, the USA had to settle for a draw against Wales because the effort was made with too much force. The pre-tournament favorites will play Serbia in their group phase opener later this week. Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli, both of Arsenal, participated in a training session with the rest of the team after it was announced that they will wear no. 18 and no. 26 for Brazil, respectively, at the World Cup. Since Switzerland and the Gunners are in the same group, a matchup is anticipated for the following Monday. Granit Xhaka is likely to start and serve as the captain for Europe. However, the midfielder has been resting and conducting some research for the previous 24 hours in preparation for this Thursday's match against Cameroon. William Saliba has been training and might make his World Cup debut against Australia when France kicks off at 7 o'clock (UK time). However, according to sources, Didier Deschamps will start Dayot Upamecano with either Raphael Varane or Ibrahima Konate, therefore he might have to do it from the bench of substitutes. Before Ghana's opening match against Portugal on Thursday, Thomas Party was active on social media, and Takehiro Tomiyasu once more practiced with the Japan team. After sitting out Canada's 2-1 defeat, it is uncertain if he will be selected for the starting lineup against Germany.
