Former Arsenal man Gervinho spent much of his time in England on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism.

With the score at 0-0 with just over ten minutes to go, the former Arsenal man timed his run across the front post well and volleyed home from an awkward angle brilliantly. Zlatan Ibrahimovic himself would have been proud of this effort.
