Arsenal win late on Penalties

It was an absolute Nail-biter of a penalty shootout. Very little to distinguish between the 2 teams. First Eduardo missed for Arsenal and luckily for Arsenal so did Vucinic for the second Roma penalty kick.
When Vucinic struck that miserable penalty, I almost thought that even the Penalties would be as boring as the Match…But it wasn’t so, most definitely not..

One after the other Arsenal youngsters kept their nerves under pressure and converted from the spot to put the pressure on Roma. Finally the pressure got to a Roma player in the form of an unfortunate Tonetto who sent his spot kick flying over the post only for the Arsenal team to rejoice…
All in all i am glad that Arsenals Champions League challenge thrives on. I dont hope them to win or even reach the Finals. Each win from here would be a miracle (unless we get Porto in Quarters & Villareal in Semis) and a great joy for all arsenal fans.

Lets get back our focus on the important game at hand on the weekend against Blackburn. Blackburn are on the verge of finding some sort of a form. they’ve just lost 2 of the last 10 matches and its upto us to make it 3 of 11 now.
The match should not be difficult especially after a team who is brimming with confidence after just reaching the quarter finals of the Champions league.
