Arsene Wenger's men defeated Bundesliga runner-ups Wolfsburg to lift the Emirates Cup for the first time since 2010 courtesy of a Theo Walcott strike which was the only goal of the game.
The cup is the second trophy the Gunners have lifted in pre-season after last week's exertions in the Premier League Asia Trophy and sets them up beautifully for the annual curtain raiser against London rivals Chelsea in the Community Shield next week Sunday.
Walcott's goal came from a neatly threaded pass by youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide in the attacking final third in the 49th-minute. The England international with the goal at his mercy slotted the ball past Switzerland international Benaglio.
The Gunners however had amassed nine points having defeated the Ligue 1 runner-ups 6-0 and by scoring against Wolfsburg they reached had ten points with a far superior goals scored total, meaning no matter if they had lost the game they would have won the tournament thanks to Walcott's goal.
As it turned out Arsenal ran out 1-0 victors and topped the group on 13 points, but it could have been more. In a tight first-half Walcott had a goal correctly ruled offside in the 35th-minute.
At the end of the opening 45 minutes Nacho Monreal pulled a cutback to Mesut Ozil from the left but the German dragged the shot wide of the mark.
The victory means Arsenal ended pre-season unbeaten winning all four matches. After playing Chelsea in the Community Shield the Gunners will entertain West Ham United at the Emirates in the Premier League's opening week on August 9th.
