Pre-season Highlight: Nketiah 88th-minute winner ensure Emery’s men end run of THREE defeats by the German champions

Eddie Nketiah scored a late winner to see Arsenal edge Bayern Munich 2-1 at the International Champions Cup on Wednesday.

Nketiah tapped in an 88th-minute winner for the Premier League outfit at Dignity Health Sports Park in California.

A strong Arsenal line-up took the lead early in the second half when Bayern defender Louis Poznanski scored an own goal.

But the German giants equalised through Robert Lewandowski, who struck with a brilliant header in the 71st minute. However, Nketiah would claim a win for Arsenal with a late tap-in after the contest opened up in the final half-hour.

However, the Bundesliga champions almost opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark.

Thomas Muller met David Alaba’s low cross from the left, but the forward was denied by Bernd Leno from close range, before the Arsenal goalkeeper also pushed away a Daniels Ontuzans strike. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then led a blistering Arsenal counter-attack before playing in Ozil, who was denied by Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer from an angle in the 38th minute.
