Eduardo well on the road to recovery

EDUARDO de Silva could take some part in Arsenal’s pre-season training following his sickening leg break in February, according to Croatia coach Slaven Bilic.

“He is recovering and he even may even join Arsenal for their preparations (for next season),” Bilic said.

Bilic believes his team are motivated to perform well in Austria and Switzerland in honour of Eduardo.

“We are motivated also because of Eduardo, it’s clear because he is very popular among players,” said Bilic.

“Eduardo’s absence is a handicap, we feel it all the time because we consider him one of the best strikers in the world. Arsenal have also felt that but we feel we are a good team and have enough to compensate.”
