Match Report: Arsenal 1-0 Dynamo Kyiv
Our featured player Nicklas Bendtner fired in a late winner to fire Arsenal into the last 16 of the Uefa Champions League. Arsenal dominated most of the game possesion wise but lacked the killer instict for most of the game.
Arsenal started the game brightly with Vela breaking away down the right, he squared it for Ramsey who fired it at Bogush who saved it out for a corner. The second chance came to Ramsey after good work from Vela who crossed it in for the on rushing Ramsey, who fired it over from a tight angle.
Dynamo Kyiv were happy to sit back and play on the counter, and the lively Banguara looked dangerous with his direct running and power. In the 35th minute Robin Van Persie cut inside and shit a ferocius drive towards goal but Bogush punched it away.
That was it for the first half, Arsenal came out for the second half with no subs made. Our featured player Nicklas Bendtner along with Wilshere and Jay Simpson was told to warm up straight after the break. Fabregas then curled in a free kick which Van Persie found but it was blocked by a Kyiv defender, the ball bounced out to Van Persie again but this time was the ball hit Gallas on the line who couldn’t get out the way.
Bendtner was then introduced with twenty minutes to go for Mexican, Carlos Vela, and he was in the thick of the action as Cesc Fabregas put Van Persie in behind who crossed it in but was just abit to heavy for Bendtner.
It was that man with three minutes to go that grabbed the headlines with three minutes to go. Cesc Fabregas Arsenal’s new captain hit a fabulous long ball over the top, Bendtner took it in his stride and thundered it home.
It has been a couple of hard weeks for Bendtner who has recieved some uncalled for critisism on various Arsenal forums and in the media. Some saying ” he was not good enough” some critisising him for his pink boots. Either way he proved the doubters wrong tonight . . .
