thumbnail Hello,

Russian pleased to get on scoresheet at Underhill...

Arsenal forward Andrey Arsahvin netted after two minutes of the Gunners' weekend friendly with Barnet, and the Russian was delighted to be back in action after a summer lay-off.

Arsene Wenger's side won the game at Underhill 4-0, Samir Nasri and Jay Simpson - with two - accompanying him on the scoresheet.

The Russian was pleased to be back in the thick of things so quickly.

"This time I was a bit in a rush," he joked, speaking to his personal official website.

"Probably because I missed football, I opened the scoring in the second minute."

Arshavin was also pleased with the way the game as a whole had gone, with pre-season seemingly going well for the Gunners.

He added: "Yes, everything is OK. Everything is according to the plan."
