Bendtner fires Gunners through

Published Add your comment

Nicklas Bendtner came off the bench to send Arsenal into the knockout stages of the Champions League, with a 1-0 victory over 10-man Dynamo Kiev at the Emirates Stadium.

William Gallas, stripped of his captaincy but back in the side, could have scored himself and then blocked a shot from team-mate Robin van Persie on the line - and it took Bendtner's strike to seal the win Arsene Wenger's men needed.

The Ukrainians, who had threatened on the counter-attack, then had Olexandr Aliyev dismissed for two bookings.
