Arsenal donned their new, Brazil-style away kit and played like five-time World Champions as they blew away the Indonesia Dream Team 7-0 at the start of their Asian tour yesterday.

Unveiling their yellow shirts and blue shorts in Jakarta, academy whiz-kids Chuba Akpom and Kristoffer Olsson scored on their first-team debuts as Arsenal poured on six goals after half-time.

England striker Theo Walcott got the opener on 19 minutes, Olivier Giroud grabbed a rapid-fire double and Lukas Podolski and fringe midfielder Thomas Eisfeld both scored late on.

Fittingly for the occasion, it was exhibition stuff and eclipsed English champions Manchester United, who lost 1-0 to the Singha All-Star XI in Bangkok in their first game under new boss David Moyes on Saturday.
