Gilberto captains young Arsenal side
GILBERTO TELLS SOMEONE WHAT TO DO
Gilberto was part of a side who beat Doncaster Rovers in the quarter final of the Carling Cup. He was captain for the match, and the match reports say he had a terrible game, along with everyone else.
GILBERTO SLIDES AROUND LIKE A SLIDING BRAZILIAN MAN
With 119 minutes gone on the clock, extra time was about to end, and Arsenal were 2-1 down to Donny Rovers. He redeemed himself and the whole Arsenal team when he scored a close range goal in the dying seconds of the game, to take the match to penalties.
GILBERTO SCORES TO DRAW THE GAME LEVEL
GILBERTO CELEBRATES HIS GOAL
Gilberto stepped up to take the first penalty out of five, and SCORED!
It was a truly remarkable sight to see Gilberto score twice in one night — and Cygan even scored his penalty.
Well done to Gilberto for captaining the side to a lucky victory. Even if he played badly, he still deserves praise for the way he celebrated scoring his 2-2 equalizer.
