Man. City to face Arsenal in Community Shield bout
Here we go, first official match of the season for Mancini and his boys, against a pretty sneaky Arsenal side that's been quite active on the transfer window.
The game starts, a few contrasts, through balls here and there with a few shots gone wide off the net - but suddenly, at the 19th minute, Kolarov picks up the ball on the wing and...
A powerfull header by Dzeko connects into the net after Kolarovs perfect floated cross which reached the far post, all Dzeko had to do was place the ball into the net - and vuolà, Man City are leading!
The first half ends without too much fuss from the Gunners, but Mancini reassured the lads that the job was half way done, they already had one hand on the cup all they had to do was finish them off and the first silverware of the season would be ours.
Second half starts off, again a few contrasts here and there - even an injury or two, but comes the 68th minute and Aguero see's Lampards run into the box...
Lampard finishes with a powerful shot into the net! By god they've done it, surely this was it, the game was going according to script as Mancini and his boys were victorious once again, together.
The Game ended 2-0 for Citizens, morale was high and celebrations begun early for the players Mancini knew what he had to do, as he had done it before; keep their heads up to grab another title win this year.
Mancini's trophy cabinet is getting a bit crowded.
