Arsenal: Gunners swoon over Sokratis volley after Portsmouth victory

Arsenal: Gunners swoon over Sokratis volley after Portsmouth victory - Arsenal

Arsenal fans were loving the volley scored by central defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos to open the scoring against League One side Portsmouth in the FA Cup round-of-sixteen last night.

After the ball was cleared from a Gunners corner in the last minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half, winger Reiss Nelson dribbled back into a crossing position and provided the assist for the Greek centre-back to volley home (video via BBC).

Sokratis was playing at right-back in place of the rested Hector Bellerin in one of nine changes made by Mikel Arteta after Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League exit to Greek champions Olympiacos at the Emirates.

The Gunners bounced back to knock out Pompey and book their place in the FA Cup quarter-final draw on Friday. Sokratis helped the north-London team get there and fans were quick to applaud his volley on Twitter:
