On Wednesday evening, Frida Maanum scored a remarkable goal for Arsenal against Bayern Munich, although Bayern won 1-0 in the first leg of their Women’s Champions League quarter-final tie. Arsenal aimed to reverse the outcome of the tie in the return leg at the Emirates Stadium, and they succeeded in leveling the score with Maanum’s impressive goal just 19 minutes into the match in north London.
Additionally, Arsenal exhibited some impressive one-touch football as they passed the ball around elegantly.
The move leading to Maanum’s goal was initiated by a delightful back-heel from Leah Williamson, which then set up Maanum to strike the ball fiercely into the top corner from outside the box. The goal was so exceptional that it quickly gained popularity on social media, with many sharing the video. You can view the goal below…
