TORREIRA DEDICATES EUROPA GOAL TO LATE FRIEND





Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Torreira put the Gunners in control at home against Napoli.

But there was plenty in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Napoli to marvel at, but for all the finesse in the finishing and the solidity shown at the back, one standout moment saw goal scorer Torreira dedicate his goal – Arsenal’s second on the night – to a close friend back home in Uruguay who recently died.

 

The t-shirt showed a photo of the Arsenal midfielder alongside close friend Rafita with the pair holding a Sampdoria shirt – the club he played for before his switch to England.

 

Rather than taking his own shirt off, the midfielder ran over to the Arsenal dugout after scoring to collect the shirt before he held it clearly in front of the camera with the message, ‘we love and miss you,’ written in Spanish.

 

Torreira would have risked a booking had he been wearing the t-shirt underneath his kit.

 

UEFA’s Law 4, Section 5 states: “Equipment must not have any political, religious or personal slogans, statements or images.
