Theo Walcott celebrates signing new contract with Arsenal by scoring the winner against Wolfsburg (Video)

Posted by

Theo Walcott scored the only goal of the game on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal beat Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg 1-0 to clinch the Emirates Cup trophy for the first time since 2010.

The England international broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half as he latched on to a fine pass from youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide to poke the ball past Diego Benaglio and score his second goal of pre-season after netting the opener against Everton last weekend.

Walcott started the game in his favoured centre-forward role and came close to finding the net in the first half and it should be noted that his goal came after he was switched to the right-wing at the interval.

It was been reported in the British media over the weekend that Walcott has signed a new long-term contract with the Gunners and his goal will have been the perfect way for him to celebrate committing his future to the club.
