Gervinho shows his class at Gunners

Arsenal's new signing Gervinho of Ivory Coast, immediately made an impact on the Gunners fans by grabbing two quick-fire goals in the Barclays English Club's pre-season training match in Germnay against Bundesliga outfit Cologne.

Gervinho, who was signed during thtis off-season break, socred first in the 7th minute, before adding his second goal in the 15th minute.

The Ivorian attacking midfielder had to be replaced after only 29 minuntes after sustaining what appeared like a minor knock. Arsene Wenger must have taken him off as a precautionary measure.

Such is the class of Gervinho that in only his first competitive match for the Gunners, he grabs a brace within 15 minutes.

If this performance is an indication of things to come in the new season, then Wenger will be rewarded for every pound he spent on the player in the summer.

Gervinho's real name is Gervais Yao Kouassi, and was born on 27 March 1987 of Ivorian parents in Anyama, Iovry Coast, and was recently signed by Arsenal from French reinging champions Lille.
