Lacazette started on the bench for the Gunners, however it didn't take him long to get his name onto the scoresheet.
Arsene Wenger was pleased to see Alexandre Lacazette get a weight "off his shoulders" with a goal on his first Arsenal appearance. He was one of the best players on the pitch in the first half, showing a confidence and maturity well beyond his years by repeatedly being at the heart of Arsenal's attacks.
Arsenal's first preseason game of the summer was highlighted by quite a few promising debuts. I just want to prepare well for the season and we will see later. His shot looked to have been blocked by the arms of defender Sebastian Ryall, but replays showed it had actually hit his back. Sydney were struggling to pick up their markers from corners, and learned no lessons from Mertesacker's strike, as twice the Gunners came close from Ozil deliveries, with Walcott and Bielik unable to find the target.
"He's a top, top player and I think he'd be a good signing for Liverpool".
The Sun is reporting that Arsenal are ready to make a third bid to try and lure the 21-year-old Frenchman to The Emirates this summer.
A blend of youth and first team experience made up Wenger's starting eleven with the English trio of Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Cohen Bramall thoroughly impressing just days after the departures of highly-rated academy starlets Chris Willock and Dan Crowley.
Alex Iwobi got down the right hand side, and then picked out Lacazette who had made a late run into the box before sliding the ball home.
Like the first half, there wasn't much joy for Sydney going forward.
The matches provide greater visibility to these clubs and can help the sport continue to grow in Australia, according to Damien De Bohun, the former A-League head.
