Arsenal concede 45-yard wondergoal in Europa League away game at the Emirates

Jhon Cordoba opened the deadlock in North London to the delight of 10,000 Germans inside the stadium

Arsenal are currently playing an away game inside their own stadium.

Approximately half of the 20,000 Cologne fans that arrived in London for their side’s Europa League game against Arsenal somehow managed to find their way inside the Emirates.

And Jhon Cordoba promptly gave the visiting army something to cheer with a miraculous opening goal.

How about that then?

The Bundesliga side’s new £17million forward made a fool of his international team-mate David Ospina with a superb effort from 45 yards out after the Arsenal keeper had rushed off his line…

A sensational goal befitting an extraordinary night.

It’s almost impossible to underestimate just how prevelant the German support is inside the stadium.

Many videos show thousands of Cologne fans present in Arsenal sections…

UEFA are likely to take action against at least one of the clubs.

But there’s no doubting that Cordoba’s strike is already a contender of Goal of the Tournament.

Arsenal fans won’t thank us for reminding them Cologne are currently bottom of the league in Germany having lost all of their games.

Something tells us the Gunners’ Europa League campaign is going to be worth keeping an eye on…
