Fans urge Arsenal to sign Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim

Arsenal Emirates

Hoffenheim attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino’s performance for Brazil against Chile impressed the Arsenal fans.

Brazil defeated Chile 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium in North London in a friendly international earlier this evening.

In what proved to be a rather low-key affair, Dunga’s side won the game thanks to a 72nd minute goal from substitute Roberto Firmino.

The Hoffenheim attacking midfielder came on in place of Luiz Adriano on the hour mark and found the target after latching onto Danilo's pass.

During the 18 minutes Firmino was on the pitch, the 23-year-old took two shots of which one was on target, attempted one dribble, made two tackles, and played 13 passes.

Firmino has been in good form for Hoffenheim so far this season, scoring six goals and creating 53 chances in 26 Bundesliga appearances.

The former Figueirense star has won 108 of the 193 dribbles he has attempted and 58 of the 147 tackles he has made in the German top flight in 2014-15.

Following the match, Arsenal fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on Firmino’s performance for Brazil against Chile.
