Arsenal’s under-19s sealed a very impressive win in Milan this afternoon overcoming reigning NextGen Series champions Inter to seal a quarterfinal showdown with CSKA Moscow.
Nico Yennaris, our Chinese-Cypriot hybrid extraordinaire, got the winner on 69 minutes driving home a terrific 25-yard effort following a determined run from the centre circle.
It was a lovely effort from Terry Burton’s captain, reminiscent of Cesc Fabregas’ goal at the San Siro a few years back, although Arseblog News was slightly perturbed to see him pull out Gareth Bale’s silly little hand celebration as he was mobbed by his teammates.
Ah well, we’ll let you off this time Nico…
You can see the goal and gawp at the terrible pitch here.
