Why Arsenal Players Are happy With Lacazette After Europa Goal

Arsenal players are reported to have had a special feeling after Alexandre Lacazette scored a free-kick winner during their Europa League game against Napoli.

Lacazette was 30 yards out but wrongfooted the goalkeeper with a stunning free-kick that flew into the top corner.

The players were happy because he has been practicing the free-kick in training.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles told arsenal.com: “I was literally right behind it, at the midway spot and I just saw the keeper go the wrong way and the ball flew into the top corner.

“He is always practising free kicks so I was pretty certain he would score one sooner or later, and he did it today in a big game.

“[He works on it] all the time, he’s a player that wants to work and wants to win. He wants to win all the time, he is very passionate about his football and you could see today what the goal meant to him.

“[The result] feels like a weight off our shoulders, the team deserved it. It was good defensive duties today from the top of the team where the strikers were all the way back to the keeper, everyone had to play their part and it was good.”
