Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eager to see his players tested in the Emirates Cup.

Arsenal's pre-season comes to a head this weekend when they play Boca Juniors and New York Red Bulls in the fifth Emirates Cup, and Wenger is looking forward to clashing with the 23-time Argentinian champions.

"The South Americans will cycle the ball at a slow pace and suddenly try to kill you, so it's always a good experience - and they have all the tricks of street football too," he said.

"They can slow the game down, they always have good technique and intelligent behaviour at the back. It's always difficult to score goals against them. Boca Juniors is a great name of world football, so it will be interesting."
