Arsenal took to Twitter to thank all the fans Down Under who turned out in huge numbers during their short tour of Sydney.
Tweeting after the Gunners won their second pre-season game, a 3-1 result over Western Sydney Warriors which they probably should have won by far more (we still haven’t managed to sell W. Work yet), Arsenal showed a video of the Arsenal players holding a banner thanking fans and waving to supporters.
Thank you all very much for making #ArsenalinSydney so special for us 🔴
We're lucky to have such brilliant support all over the world 👊 pic.twitter.com/sDIrkWKO06
