Arteta: Arsenal will benefit from Germany's World Cup success

Mikel Arteta feels Arsenal will benefit from Germany's run to the World Cup final.

Three of his Gunners team-mates, Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski, are in Joachim Low's squad in Brazil.

"It must be an unbelievable feeling just to have the chance to play in a World Cup final," said Arteta, speaking as Arsenal launched their new PUMA kit yesterday.

"We'll be very proud for them if they win it and it will be a big experience for them to win a tournament like that.

"It gives you confidence and another dimension. Hopefully they can do it and bring that spirit back with them to Arsenal. That will only strengthen the team and the spirit and the ability to win which is the most important thing."
