Mercilessly, England’s Arsenal thrashed the Major League Soccer All-Stars 5-0 and spoiled the midweek celebrity game at Audi Field before the start of the League Cup.

Houston Dynamo’s Hector Herrera, the only Mexican representative in the game, entered the pitch in the 68th minute, beginning his engagement on the bench.

The Premier League side took the lead at the start of the game. In the 5th minute, Gabriel Jesus made it 1-0 on the counterattack with a powerful right-footed shot from outside the area. After taking the lead in the score, the Englishmen set the pace of the game at Audi. The MLS All-Star team tried to go on the attack and had at least two chances, but before leveling the scores, Arsenal widened the gap with their second goal of the evening.

In the 23′, Bugayo Saka provided the assist, Leandro Trassart got very close to the six-yard box and easily finished with his right foot to make it 2-0, with the game going into halftime.

Wayne Rooney, coach of the American League’s All-Star team, moved his pieces early in the quest to even the score, but, again, before the scoreboard was discounted, the Englishmen hit third and Audie Field en route to victory.

The referee flagged Tim Parker’s hand inside the area and allowed the maximum penalty. Jorginho converted on 47′ and coach Mikel Arteta’s side secured victory.

Arsenal finished the game down the stretch; At 84, Martin Odegaard served and Gabriel Martinelli sent it into the back of the net to make it 4-0; A few minutes later, in the 89′, Kai Howards made it 5-0 undisputed.
