European Football: Etebo’s First Goal, Leno Injured And Arsenal Constancy

Oghenekaro EteboNigeria international Oghenekaro Etebo has taken to social media to express delight at scoring his first-ever goal for Getafe in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Eibar at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The Azulones came into the match winless since the restart of La Liga, with their last outing a goalless draw at home to Espanyol.

The 24-year-old midfielder who made his second start joined Gatefe in the January transfer window from Championship side, Stoke City.

His close-range shot gave his UEFA Champions League-chasing team the lead. Getafe have only taken two points from the three matches and have slipped to fifth in the league standings with eight matches left in the 2019/20 season.

Change is the only constant thing that keeps life evolving and we believe Arsenal FC can be added to that constancy. COVID-19 has changed how we see the world today but regardless of how everyone is going to view things, Arsenal continue to emphasise that it does not matter who manages the team, winning is far from their goals.

The showing and results from Arsenal remain the same even after new a leadership.

After David Luiz’s embarrassing performance against Manchester City, there was another shameful showing at the AMEX Stadium when the Gunners gave away a one-goal lead, scored by Nicolas Pepe in the 68th, and contrived a 2-1 loss to Brighton.

The Gunners, especially Matteo Guendouzi, then showed their angst against Neal Maupay, who scored Brighton’s winner after injuring first choice goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, in the first half.

Apparently, that was the reason they lost – we can say that is clutching at straws – not entirely inconsistent with the recent Arsenal vintage.

Goal-line technologySheffield United: Goal-line technology in EPL farce

The ball was so far over the line, it should have been given without the help of goal-line technology but since that part of the game handed that responsibility to technology, referees and assistant referees have become–let’s just say lazier in football-goal-judgments.

Sheffield United thought they had the go-ahead goal against Aston Villa when Villa goalkeeper Orjan Nyland was bumped by his own defender and subsequently carried the ball over the line, but referee Michael Oliver did not receive a signal on his wrist apparatus to give the goal.

Afterward, Hawk-Eye apologised and said that was the first failure in almost 9000 tests.

Technology can also fail!
