Mesut Ozil completed a fantastic comeback for Arsenal in the Champions League against Ludogorets with a fantastic winner in the 87th minute.
Ozil timed his run to perfection and was sent clear on goal. Instead of rushing Ozil chipped the ball over the keeper and then used his skill to put two defenders on the ground before slotting home.
It was Ozil’s seventh goal of the season and probably his best of the bunch. Ozil enjoys playing against the Bulgarians after scoring his career-first hat-trick against them in the reverse fixture at the Emirates.
Talking on BT Sport after the match, Michael Owen said the finish was as “cool as a cucumber” and that it “was a brilliant result for Arsenal.”
Arsenal fans took to Twitter to celebrate the goal that gave them a valuable three points after going 2-0 down in the first half.
They have qualified for the knockout stage with two games to go along with Paris Saint Germain. Both teams have ten points after four games but Arsenal top the group on goal difference.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Even Piers Morgan got in on the act – and he’s notoriously hard to please as an Arsenal fan.
