The north London club won 5-1 on 1963, before repeating that victory in a 2-0 triumph in 2003:Michael Dominski·Live ReporterJanuary 9, 2023 at 12:01 PM ESTHow Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun would fit with USMNT after breakout seasonFor 13 years, Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun was the public eye. The New York City-born striker’s family emigrated to England when he was two years old, ultimately joining the Gunners’ academy at the age of 8. For over a decade, he developed while studying Arsenal forwards like Robin van Persie, Olivier Giroud and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This season has been his breakthrough, having scored 10 goals while on loan to French Ligue 1 side Reims through the first half of the season.
That’s good enough to be the club’s top scorer and open more discussion as to where his international future may lie, as Balogun is eligible to represent England, the United States and Nigeria. And while Arsenal has yet to recall him as a replacement for the injured Gabriel Jesus, his torrid form has opened a lucrative potential transfer market for teams in need of a goalscorer. What has made Balogun so successful in France, and how might he fit in to a U. S. national team program in desperate need of a striker (should he choose the U. )? The Athletic dives in.

Hmm…. doesn't exactly bode well. Hello from the Kassam Stadium! Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of the FA Cup third round fixture between Arsenal and Oxford United. The Gunners have won the FA Cup on more occasions than any other side in history and Mikel Arteta will be hoping that tonight’s game is just the first step on a path that leads to a record-extending 15th trophy come June.
