Arsenal fans have been going wild after Matteo Guendouzi earned his second call up of the season into the France national side.
Is VAR ruining football?
The 20-year-old replaced the injured Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi, who came off after 70 minutes in the side’s clash with AC Milan (via Evening Standard)
Guendouzi was called up to the senior side earlier in the season after Paul Pogba pulled out of the September internationals due to injury.
The youngster has enjoyed a fine season for the north London side, averaging the second-highest pass accuracy and the most passes per game of any Arsenal player (via WhoScored).
Deschamps praised the £40.5m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, midfielder for his power and technical quality after he was called up in September, however, warned Arsenal not to ask too much of him (via Foot Mercato)
His call up has made the fans go wild as they took to Twitter to show their happiness. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

Guendouzi keeping the Arsenal DNA at Les Blues alive because Lacazette is too basic to get in.

Maybe not so great last couple of games, but Guendouzi always gives everything on the pitch. He battles on and keeps composure when the team needs him. Likely to get first minutes in France team at age of 20. We have special talent on our hands.
Well deserved Matteo Guendouzi! https://t.co/YUFsUpt9hH
