Arsenal win in dramatic penalty over roma  

Thursday, 12 March 2009

Last night Arsenal was a winner in crucial and dramatic penalty over roma at stadio olimpico. Roma showed that they have been never give up until the end of games but suddenly lost in the last of penalty shoot-out.

Though it is unlucky for them and lucky for the gunners which now showed that the english clubs was completed in a clean sweep of four teams into the Champions League quarterfinals following a cliffhanger shootout victory by Arsenal.

When Max Tonetto shot high over the bar it gave Arsenal passage into the last eight 7-6 on penalties after the match ended 1-0, 1-1 on aggregate, after extra time.

"We needed to show our nerve tonight and determination," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports. "We were a bit nervous at the start and gave a goal away more by nerves than them creating the chance. "I must pay tribute to the nerves of my team. There is something in there that comes out, that is huge mental strength.

"Our character has been questioned many times. I’ve said many times that this team is very strong."

but in my opinion arsenal need to be strong in away game sames as much play in their home, if that not happen otherwise arsenal should be shame in others english clubs whose done it well.
