Vermaelen admits Arsenal practised pens

Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen admits they practised penalties last week ahead of their FA Cup semifinal shootout win over Wigan Athletic.

Hailing Poland stopper Lukasz Fabianski's spot-kick heroics, Vermaelen admitted Arsenal had practised penalties in the previous week's preparations.

"We did have some practices but I wasn't down to take one," he said.

"Lukasz is an outstanding goalie, he works hard for it; he works so hard that he deserves this."
