    The first 45 minutes are up against 1860 Munich in tonight's friendly in Innsbruck, where a goal from Thierry Henry in the 42nd minute, from a Bergkamp pass gave Arsenal the lead.
    The game's first chance fell to former Arsenal favourite Davor Suker in the 3rd minute when through on goal was stopped by a good save form David Seaman, wearing the new grey goalkeeping jersey.
    Henry had broken down both flanks after this with good chances but no one being able to convert.
    Bergkamp and Cole tried a couple of chips against a tall goalkeeper but without success.
    Most of the chances and play were with Munich, and Suker and Max linked well together up front.
    A foul on Vieria by the Czech international Tietzer(?) in which he came off worse, and left the TV cameras covering him laying on the ground, failed to show Arsenal break and Henry convert Bergkamp's pass into the back of the net, which if we had seen it, may have been offside according to the TV commentry.
    Edu missed a good chance from a wonderful through ball by Henry and Bergkamp had a good flick, almost like the goal he got against Newcastle, but it was too far away from him to retrieve.
    Rest of the game comes in 45 minutes!
    A full squad being played for the first hour, and SILVA's squad number is 19, but for some reason he does not have his name on the back of his shirt like everyone else!
