Arsenal beat Bayern Munich on penalties!

Arsenal spoilt James Rodriguez's debut for Bayern Munich after equalising in the 93rd minute and then beating the German side on penalties in the International Champions Cup.

Bayern were running away with another win over "The Gunners" after they took the lead after just nine minutes from the penalty spot courtesy of Robert Lewandowski. Iwobi's injury-time leveller sent the game straight to penalties.

Both clubs put new signings in their starting line-up. He only scored five goals in the Bundesliga last season, and endured a 999-minute scoring drought at the league level. Starke denied another one-on-one attempt by the French striker in the 31st.

Granit Xhaka also rushed back to deny James an open goal just before the break after a cut-back from Franck Ribery on the wing, while Cech made another low save from the Colombia worldwide just after the break.

Speaking on Tuesday at a press conference held before that opening clash with the Gunners in Shanghai, Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti insisted that the versatile James had not been signed as a replacement for Muller or indeed anyone else.

"The result doesn't reflect the course of the game unfortunately but it was a good test".

Delta Airlines Hits Back: Calls Ann Coulter's Insults 'Unacceptable'
At least one outlet reported that Coulter was asked to move so a female passenger could sit in the same row with her family. The airline also called her tweets "about our other customers and employees" unacceptable and unnecessary.

One player they have let go, however, is goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who completed a move to Juventus for €12.2 million (S$19.2 million).

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said his team had to adapt to two different climates.

Large parts of the second half were dominated by Bayern, although the proceedings were not as fluid due to the large number of changes made by both teams. "But maybe Bayern also dropped a bit".

The match ended 1-1 in regulation time and led to a penalty shootout, which Arsenal won 4-3.

Arsenal face Chelsea in Beijing in their next warm-up game at the weekend, while Bayern play AC Milan in Shenzhen, southern China.
