Arsene Wenger welcomed the chance for Arsenal to prove themselves against Europe´s elite following Wednesday night´s 2-1 triumph over Steaua Bucharest.

Victory was not enough to secure the Gunners top spot in Group H of the Champions League and they are now likely to land tough opposition in the draw for the last 16 a week on Friday, but Wenger refused to rue the failure to secure inclusion among the top seeds and is confident Arsenal can topple any of the competition´s big guns.

The Frenchman said: "We finished with 13 points which was good but not good enough to win the group. That promises us a very interesting last-16 game. I´m not at all disappointed that we can now draw one of the big clubs."
