Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira was given an impressive No 14 Uruguay shirt as a birthday cake when he celebrated turning 23 on Monday.
According to Daily Mail, Torreira was treated to a lavish meal with his family and friends to mark the occasion and after eating his dinner, he was presented with the special cake.
The bustling midfielder posed in front of the sweet treat on Instagram before also taking pictures with his loved ones and girlfriend Vittoria Repetto before they went out.
Torreira will now turn his attention to Arsenal’s Europa League round of 32 tie against BATE Borisov on Thursday night.
The former Sampdoria midfielder recently admitted that Arsenal ‘deserve’ to be playing Champions League football because of the club’s status.
He told Sky Sports News: ‘We obviously don’t want that form to happen again. As players, you always need to be fighting for an objective when you walk out onto the pitch and for us that means qualifying for the Champions League.
