Owen Hargreaves believes that even Nicolas Pepe’s Arsenal teammates were shocked by his goal last night. Pepe added Arsenal’s third against Dundalk.
The Ivorian dragged the ball with the studs of his left-foot on to his right, before curling a shot into the top corner from the edge of the box. It was a quite brilliant goal, and Hargreaves noticed that all of Arsenal’s players were stunned by the moment of brilliance.
“He’s a really skilful player,” Hargreaves said. “And it was that unique that even his teammates know. That’s why the reaction, they’re all like ‘wow, what was that one’.”
