Samir Nasri has said he is relishing the prospect of playing against England at Wembley tomorrow night. However, the Frenchman has admitted the timing of the fixture couldn’t be worse due to the ambitions of the north London club. The Gunners have upcoming domestic fixtures against bitter north London rivals Tottenham and Aston Villa, as well as a Champions League game against Sporting Braga.
According to Goal.com, Nasri said: “Arsenal have got big games coming up so maybe the fixture-wise, it is not ideal. But it is always a big game against England and no one would turn down the chance to play at Wembley. There is always extra rivalry between England and France.”
