Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has told his Uruguay teammates that the Emirates Stadium is an awesome ground with a big capacity.
The Uruguay international joined the Gunners from Sampdoria in the summer for a fee of around £26m.
The defensive midfielder, who immediately established under manager Unai Emery, is yet to taste a defeat since he has started for the Gunners.
With Uruguay will take on Brazil at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night in their friendly game, Torreira is so excited to play for his country at his current home.
The 22-year-old, who starred for Uruguay in the World Cup in the summer, is looking forward to pulling on his nation’s shirt again later this week.

“When I heard the game against Brazil was going to be in ‘our house’ I was very happy because I know it well and it’s a ground that fits the occasion,” Torreira told Hayters.
“It’s a fantastic stadium, an awesome ground with a big capacity.”
“My team-mates were asking me ‘how is the stadium?’ and wanted me to tell them a little bit about what it’s like because I play there every week.”
“It will be a big match and lots of fans will be able to watch. So it should be fun and a great spectacle.”
“It will be an awesome game. It’s a friendly but it’s still such an important game.”
“Every time you pull on your national team’s jersey you are giving it all your strength and taking it seriously.”
“We had a tour of Asia recently where results didn’t go our way but the important thing is that the team looks good and it feels like we are continuing to grow.”
“We’ve got to maintain our claim as a product of the coach and shows the growth of this team.”
“And at this point in time, the clash with Brazil should be a great match.”
The young midfielder was called up to full Uruguay squad for the 2018 China Cup in March 2018 and has made his debut in the 2–0 win over the Czech Republic in the China Cup semi-final.
