“What a happy moment for Arsenal,Coach, Nelson and all of us fans …,” President Kagame wrote on Twitter.
As soon as the game began, the visitors’ Philip Billing scored, giving the Gunners a terrible start. At 30 minutes to the end of the game, Marcos Senesi increased Bournemouth’s lead with a second goal, putting Arsenal in serious danger.
A few minutes later, Arsenal responded with a goal of their own after this second goal gave them energy. The first came from Thomas Partey, and Ben White quickly tied it up.
Nelson’s spectacular goal to make it 3-2 came as a result of Arsenal’s late effort to secure a victory.
