Nicolas Pepe Scores 2 Free-Kicks as Arsenal Stage a Comeback Win

Arsenal’s record summer signing Nicolas Pepe stepped from the bench and scored two stunning late freekicks to hand the Gunners a 3-2 comeback win over Vitoria Guimaraes, MySportDab reports.

Arsenal were 2-1 down at home to Portuguese outfit Vitoria in the Europa League when the Ivorian winger was sent on by Unai Emery in what proved to be an inspired substitution.

The former Lille man scored his first goal in open play for Arsenal when his curling set-piece strike levelled matters ten minutes from time.

However, Pepe bagged an even better free-kick with his cultured left-foot, this time bending one into the top bins in the last kick of the game.

The former Lille man was prolific in France last season, scoring 22 goals in 38 Ligue One games, and Arsenal supporters will be hoping their No.19 can seriously kick on after his dead-ball double tonight.
