Arshavin & Nasri Shimmy and Shake March 10, 2010

In case you missed it Arsenal left little doubt to which side deserved to move in their pairing with Porto. Without their captain Cesc Fabregas all Arsenal managed to do was punch in 5 and completely dominate possession and pace of the game Tuesday at the Emerates. The second and third goals stood out as individual feats of skill coupled with the collective ineptitude of a few good errr bad men. Arshavin took a terrible clearance by the porto defense and proceeded to weave his way to the end line just before hitting a wide open Bendtner for the second of is treble to come. The third goal game from Samir Nasri who very Iniesta like probed his way through the defense from the right edge of the box with a mix of light touches and an amazing ability to change direction and pace on a dime. this led to a shot at the far post from an extreme angle to the right of Helton which was buried with little question of intent of a cross or anything less than a superb finish.

I wouldn’t usually sit here and recap something you can just as easily read on soccernet or the like. But for my money (by the way i’m not paying) I’m not sure how many goals set up by individual ball skill ive seen better than those two this year.
