Major League Soccer announced its plan to play against English Premier League leaders Arsenal FC in a club friendly on July 19, 2023, at Audi Field in Washington, DC.

It is going to be Arteta’s second consecutive tour of the United States of America, and it is going to be a wonderful sight for the Arsenal squad.

The match is all about the MLS All-Star Skills Challenge presented by AT&T 5G at Audi Field.

Other programs surrounding the match include a concert, community service initiatives, and many more.

The tickets will go on sale to the public on March 28, 2023. The game is going to be Rooney’s third all-star appearance.

Rooney’s last two previous appearances were against Atletico Madrid in 2019 and also in 2011 as a Manchester United player.

Meanwhile, Rooney has reacted to being selected as a manager to face a team he scored a lot of goals against while playing in the Premier League for Everton and Manchester United.

He believes having the opportunity to lead the MLS All Stars against a team like Arsenal is one of the biggest highlights of his life and an unforgotten experience for his passionate fans in DC.

Arsenal may end up winning the league if they continue to play with consistency.

However, there are more tough matches coming Arsenal’s way.

Manchester City are likely to chase Arsenal until the end of the season. Arteta wants to win the Premier League for his team for the first time in 20 years.

However, if the team fails to win the league, it is going to be a disappointing season for them.

The Gunners are out of all competition, and the Premier League is their last hope of winning a title this season.

Arsenal are likely to end the season as the best team in England.

Former New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner, who joined Arsenal on July 20, 2022, will be available to face the United States all-stars.

This is going to be the first time facing a team from America since he left.
