Costa Rica star Campbell targets Arsenal place

Sunday 15 June 2014

After inspiring Costa Rica to an impressive World Cup win over Uruguay on Saturday, striker Joel Campbell has targeted a place in the Arsenal first team for next season, reports Goal.com.

Uruguay led after a somewhat sterile first half thanks to Edinson Cavani’s penalty, but the South American side laboured significantly in the second half, and Campbell grabbed the equaliser with an emphatic finish on 55 minutes.


Just two minutes later, Costa Rica were in front as Oscar Duarte guided a superb header inside the far post from a free-kick, before Campbell capped off an outstanding individual display by providing a defence-splitting pass for Marcos Urena to roll home the third.


Campbell has been an Arsenal player since 2011, but is yet to make a competitive appearance for the club. He spent last season on loan at Olympiakos, who he helped to the Greek title and the last 16 of the Champions League. After the match in Fortaleza, the 21-year-old insisted that he is looking to be part of the set-up at the Emirates Stadium next season.


"Of course I have to go back because I have a contract with Arsenal, but the most important thing just now is my country and the World Cup," he said.


"Today was excellent for me but it would have come to naught without the contribution of my colleagues. Everyone lived up to their responsibilities. I tried to do my best to score goals and my colleague supported me. We have to take one step after another. We have difficult matches ahead but this will give us impetus."
