Aaron Ramsey has spoken about his wonder goal against CSKA Moscow in the Europa League last night (via Arsenal.com).
It was the highlight of a memorable night of Europan football at the Emirates Stadium for Arsenal.
The Gunners secured a commanding 4-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final between the two teams.
Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring in the ninth minute but it was the Welshman’s second goal which will be remembered most fondly.
The midfielder made a late run into the box and after a wonderful pass from Mesut Ozil, had the presence of mind to flick the ball over the head of Igor Akinfeev and into the net.
“I saw a little movement [from the keeper],” Ramsey revealed after the match.

“I knew if I managed to get it over him I would have had a chance of it going in and thankfully it did.”
Ramsey hit the post in the second half and had a lot of chances to grab his second hattrick of the season.
“I like to make those late runs into the box and I had plenty of opportunities but I’m happy that I contributed to the team today.
“But yeah, on another day I might have got a third, but it wasn’t to be.”
It was a wonderful strike from Aaron Ramsey to cap what was an impressive performance from the Welshman. Ramsey can be pleased with his night but will surely be a little disappointed that he didn’t add to his brace.
