Arsenal News: Dani Ceballos makes a strange comparison between Lionel Messi and former Gunner’s midfielder while playing for Spain.
On Loan Arsenal midfielder, Dani Ceballos fully recovered from the hamstring scare that kept him away from the match against Norway last weekend to feature for Spain vs Sweden on Tuesday night.

The foul in the final 3rd of the match led to an unusual exchange between the pair. Kristoffer Olson said after the match:
“He said to me to stop acting like I was Messi,” Olsson revealed .
“I can’t remember what I said back. I thought it was strange, I don’t understand what he really meant.”
Olsson however, would be proud of his performance as Sweden held Spain to a 1-1 draw.
It’s heavy now. We have 1-0 to the last minute and I think we make a great match. But I’m proud of the performance we do. We have everything in our own hands, it’s up to us to move on.
It was a lot of fun to play today. It was a good team; against good players you have to raise yourself and I thought I and we did. It was fun to play.
Sweden almost won the match but a 92nd equaliser by Rodrigo ensured that both teams left with a point each. Olsson and the boys however, are not too upset and are in fact proud of the game they showcased last night.
