Gunners ace Nicolaas Pepe scores with a backheel for the Ivory Coast
Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe may be struggling with his club right now but his confidence has not been dampened. The 24-year-old linked up with Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha for the Ivory Coast’s second goal tonight.
It was a bit of a cheeky goal with Zaha running at the defenders before feeding Pepe who scored with a backheel.
The combination of the two wingers has given Arsenal fans a glimpse of what it could have been like if Zaha had signed.

Wouldn’t have minded a clip of Zaha’s goal too!! 😜
Man utd: We are going to Sign EVERYBODY!!
Arsenal: WE are going to sign whoever improves our squad!!
spurs: were going to hijack Arsenal’s deals
Barcelona: We’ll take Arsenal players once they hit top form
PSG: We want to be the first club to sign a player for £1 billion!
Dortmund: We are going to sell EVERYBODY!!
Bayern Munich: We’ll take cut-price Barcelona flops!
It is obvious that Zaha is a better dribbler, but we already have too many right-footed attackers that can play as LW
Pepe has to learn from his compatriot if he wants to succeed in England
Because he is not as agile as Zaha, he should not rely on his tricks alone to get past his opponents. Stealing the ball is another way to do it, but he has to press hard to force the opponents to make errors
Oh do shut up. Zaha a better dribbler? 😂😂😂😂
Well said gotanidea.
May be PEP should build his muscles and stamina just like Zaha. E.Premier league is physical and would not allow him (PEP) the luxury of space and liberty he had in France. This is important if he must shine in Arsenal and live up to fans expectation of him.
Good. Hopefully the goal will help him improve by giving him more belief in himself. Also hope he learns from Zaha too
Nice goal but Zaha served it on a plate for him. I really hope Pepé comes good ..so far he looks no better than Ismaila Sarr who cost Watford a measly £30M.
Or Christian Pulisic, who cost £60m, and who at times hasn’t even been on the bench for Chelsea!
Just a reminder eh? Lol
