“So unappreciated” – Arsenal fans can’t understand Lacazette’s France omission

Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette has won the club’s Player of the Year reward, scoring 19 goals this season and registering 10 assists in the process as well.

The French coach silenced all criticism towards his approach and selection by winning the World Cup last year, though there’s definitely a sense that certain players are being hugely overlooked, and Lacazette is one of them.
