Eduardo closer to return after playing 90 minutes for reserves

By Randy Osae

eduardo-for-reserves-vs-stokeEduardo da Silva is nearing a return to competitive football after completing a satisfactory 90 minutes for the club’s reserves against Stoke City on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old failed to notch a goal, but did have a late strike correctly ruled offside in an intriguing match at the Britannia Stadium.

This comes as boosting news for Arsene Wenger’s always stricken side and the availability of Eduardo will come soon. Indeed, the Croatian looked quite solid in his outing today and it will not be too much of a surprise should he be selected to make the bench for any games ahead.

On the night, English prodigy Jack Wilshere also claimed the plaudits with a magnificent brace which earned a 10-man Arsenal a 2-2 draw.

  1. This is good news, cant wait to see him in the first team

  2. At least we know Jack wilshere is here to stay

  3. Randy, any video highlights for this game?

  4. I think wenger will gradually ease him into the 1st team getting him ready to be a starter in 2010 season

  5. Sorry City, I wish there were any videos of the game out there but you have to understand that even photos of it were hard to come by.

  6. I hope he will return soon (isnt Eduardo 25 ?)

  7. You’re right Risje. He is 25.
