Tomas Soucek and Vlad Coufal’s former club Slavia Prague came from behind to draw with Arsenal in the Europa League on Thursday!
Most Irons will have had a close eye on how Slavia performed, with the two club forging a close relationship in recent months.
And they will have been impressed with the fortitude of the Czech side, as they bounced back from what looked like a killer blow in the 86th minute.
In a really low-key affair, Arsenal scored the opening goal with just four minutes of normal time remaining, as Nicolas Pepe sprinted through and chipped a lovely finish over the Slavia keeper.
But they came roaring back and equalised in the third minute of injury time.
Tomas Holes came in at the back post at a corner and sent a header beyond Bernd Leno, who essentially parried the ball into the roof of the net.
It gives Slavia an advantage ahead of the second leg, as they have a precious away goal.
We may be seeing more of them in this season’s Europa League!
