Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has hailed Mesut Ozil’s strike against Newcastle on Saturday as being reminiscent of one of Zinedine Zidane’s greatest moments.
With 45 minutes of the 2002 Champions League final played, Zidane, who was turning out for Real Madrid, smashed home an incredible volley at Hampden to help the Spaniards to a 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
Cech believes that Ozil’s goal – the only one of the weekend’s game – was a similar type of effort.
“It was a fantastic goal,” he told the club’s official website. “It made me think of the Zidane goal in the Champions League final in Glasgow against Leverkusen. The ball went the other way but the technique was a moment of brilliance which literally won the game.
“He had a fantastic game.”
