Arshavin was given a visa to Britain

February 6 2009

New football Arsenal Russian Andrei Arshavin received today a work visa in England and in the near future can already fly to London.

Usually, the procedure of obtaining a visa takes at least ten days, but due to the fact that the coach Arsenal Arsene Wenger was eager to see their freshman at least on the bench for the match with Tottenham, Arsenal petitioned the British Foreign Office with request to speed up the process, reports RIA Novosti .

Arshavin had previously stated that "fly first flight" to London as soon as the visa will be granted. In Sunday's league match of England Arsenal meet Tottenham, which is Roman Pavlyuchenko. As part of the Arsenal striker Russia will act under the 23-th number.
