Adan delivers penalty heroics as Atletico open pre-season with shootout win

Milan link Ivan Gazidis

The 17-year-old won some serious plaudits after he scored a superb equaliser in Arsenal's clash with Atletico Madrid in Singapore on Thursday.

The game went straight to penalties after 90 minutes, with Arsenal missing three of their four as substitute goalkeeper Antonio Adan saved from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Joe Willock and Edward Nketiah.

The win means Atletico now occupies the 7th position on the log with 3 points from one game, while the Gunners occupies the 9th position with no point from one game. "Arsenal has always played offensive football but under Jose, the team at United was playing a bit differently".

Unai Emery has challenged the rest of Arsenal's young players to follow the example set by Emile Smith Rowe.

Former Real Madrid and Real Betis keeper Adan is expected to understudy first choice Jan Oblak, with Simeone telling the postgame news conference at Singapore's National Stadium that the 31-year-old was settling in very well at his new club.

Israel lawmakers approve controversial Jewish identity law
He said he had called it "a source of inspiration to believe in ideals that transformed us from Jews to Israelis". Erdogan has called for a summit of Muslim leaders twice in the past six months after U.S.

But he stopped short of saying whether he would now get his chance in a competitive game.

The Spaniard said: 'Aaron is an important player for us, and the contract is one thing for the club and the player. For me, he's a very good person, a very good professional and he has a lot of experience in the football world. They are working hard in training to be involved with the first team.

Smith Rowe equalised with a well-taken solo strike to leave Emery happy with his side's overall display - even if they failed from the spot in the penalty shoot-out.

Right-back Hector Bellerin knows what it takes to make the jump from the academy to the first team, and he believes Smith-Rowe could join him in making the step up. I'm very happy with his work on the pitch but it's not only today, it's every day.
