Arsenal‘s Leandro Trossard left an indelible mark during the international break. He thus serves as a stark reminder to manager Mikel Arteta of his immense talents. In Belgium‘s resounding 5-0 triumph over Estonia, Trossard showcased the significant potential he brings to the Gunners.
Despite Arsenal giving him limited playing time this season, Leandro Trossard was given a starting role for Belgium. This was under the guidance of head coach Domenico Tedesco. He seized this opportunity and left a profound impact. He notably scored a breathtaking solo goal in the 18th minute, following Jan Vertonghen‘s earlier opener.
Trossard‘s goal was a work of art. This reminds us of the kind of strikes that former Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez was known for. He received the ball on the edge of the box, elegantly evaded two sliding challenges, and dispatched a precise shot. Thus showcasing extraordinary skill and finesse.
Leandro Trossard hasn’t enjoyed as much playing time since his transfer from Brighton to Arsenal in January. His performance for Belgium serves as a potent reminder of his potential contributions to the Gunners. He began his Arsenal career promisingly, accumulating seven assists and scoring a goal in his first 11 matches. This includes a memorable hat-trick of assists against Fulham in March. However, the emergence of Gabriel Martinelli as Arteta‘s preferred left-winger has limited Trossard‘s opportunities on the pitch.
Trossard praised by Mikel Arteta
In April, Arteta praised Leandro Trossard for his versatility and ability to shoulder responsibility during games. He highlighted his capability to play various attacking roles. Arteta remarked,
“We knew about his quality and what he could bring to the team. We are really pleased with him. He can play right, left, he can play as an attacking midfielder, as a nine, false nine. He’s really contributing to the team. He really takes a lot of responsibility in games to make things happen – and we love that.”
Despite his recent lack of playing time at Arsenal, Trossard‘s standout performance for Belgium underscores his undeniable skill. Arsenal fans will undoubtedly be eager to witness more of his quality in upcoming matches. He continues to remind everyone of his immense talent and the valuable depth he adds to the squad.
