Boca Juniors star Riquelme excited to be playing at Arsenal

Boca Juniors star Juan Roman Riquleme is excited to be playing at Arsenal's Emirates stadium.

The former Barcelona and Villarreal midfielder played at Highbury in the 2006 Champions League Semi-Final and was part of the Argentina side that lost 3-0 to Brazil in an international friendly at Arsenal's new home the same year.

"I will be able to tell my children about these experiences," Riquelme told

"I was fortunate enough to play against Brazil in this stadium and we loved it. In the infamous Semi-Final, we played in the previous Arsenal stadium."
