Dynamo Kiev 1-1 Arsenal

Sep 18, 2008

William Gallas salvaged a draw for Arsenal with a last-gasp goal in their Champions League opener at Dynamo Kiev.

Gallas poked in from point-blank range at the far post after a low cross from man-of-the-moment Theo Walcott.

The goal cancelled out a harsh penalty for Kiev when Bacary Sagna was punished for bringing down Ognjen Vukojevic and Ismael Bangoura slotted in.

Arsenal spurned a number of chances in the game and looked like they might pay the price before the equaliser.

Gallas’s 88th minute effort also saved an embarrassing defeat for Arsenal who have consistently struggled on trips to the former Soviet Union.
