As I wrote which female Arsenal players will be representing their countries at the Olympics, it’s only correct that I acknowledge the sole male Gooner who will be playing in Tokyo.

Yet to be given a full cap by their senior team, Martinelli has been called up to represent Brazil.

Asked to train with the first team before Copa America, it’s another indication that he’s part of the nation’s long-term plans.

That’s a blow to Italy who are holding on to the hope that he will ask to represent them, based on that being where his Father was born.

He would have been joined by Gabriel, but the defender had to withdraw through injury.

The timing will frustrate Mikel Arteta who has yet to be able to pick the youngster for a consecutive run of games.

That’s been due to a few injuries, but now there’s a possibility the 20-year-old will be away from London until the 7th of August. That’s when the Gold Medal match is scheduled, less than a week before we kick off the Prem at Brentford.

Obviously, fitness won’t be an issue with the attacker playing competitive fixtures in Japan, but it’s not ideal to miss an entire pre-season where a manager will be introducing new ideas.

Already cautious not to overplay the Brazilian, it might be a case of him being gently introduced into the campaign.

Brazil won Olympic Gold in Rio, so an early exit this time is unlikely. Compared to other nations, Brazil take the Football Olympics very seriously. Up to 5 years ago it was the one prize that alluded them.

So a Gold medal for Martinelli would make him a household name in his homeland.

He’s one of only three English based talent in a 23-man squad, mostly made up of domestic based players.

The criteria is different than the Women’s criteria for squad selections. For the men, coaches can only pick three players over the age of 24.

16 teams are competing for medals, with 4 groups of 4. The Top 2 from each group go to knockout stages.

Brazil kick off at 12-30 (UK time) this lunchtime in a mouth-watering tie with Germany.

Good luck Martinelli. Show Arteta that you should be a regular starter this season…

Manager mikel Ateta should know how to survive without gabriel matinelli.

Just kicking off now and no Martinelli, not even on the bench.

Borussia Dortmund internationals: Reinier and Brazil beat Germany in Olympics opener

Brazil and Germany faced off at the International Stadium Yokohama on Thursday in a rematch of the final of the 2016 Olympic Games. The defending Olympic champions got off to a blistering start and took the lead in the 7th minute through Richarlison. The Everton forward then doubled his tally mid-way through the first half, before completing his hat-trick in the 30th minute.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Nadiem Amiri pulled a goal back for Germany ten minutes into the second half. But their hopes of a potential comeback suffered a big blow in the 63rd minute when Wolfsburg’s Maximilian Arnold was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.

Germany continued to pile the pressure on Brazil despite being down to ten men. And they finally managed to half the deficit six minutes from time through Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ragnar Ache.

But Brazil were not going to be denied. And they sealed the win in added time, with Bayer Leverkusen’s Paulinho finishing off a fine counter attack.

On-loan Borussia Dortmund forward Reinier Jesus started on the bench for Brazil and came on to replace Richarlison in the 74th minute. He showed a few glimpses of his quality and helped his national team see out the win.

Next up for Brazil in Group D of the men’s football tournament at the Olympic Games is a clash against Ivory Coast on Sunday. While Germany will go up against Saudi Arabia on the same day.
