Even more impressive was that they were the first team to do so after beating Italy and Uruguay in the opening two matches. Campbell was major recent towards this, as he combined impressive hard work along with great quality.

“Joel Campbell is a great player. He can pass the ball well and smells the goal. We are all waiting to see him in an Arsenal shirt. Hopefully he will be a player Arsene Wenger likes because I would love to see him play for Arsenal,” said the former Arsenal striker while giving his opinions to BBC. Henry is currently playing for New York Red Bulls in MLS, but is widely expected to announce his retirement in the next few years. Henry is considered as a legend at Arsenal and also has a statue at the club.
