In the aftermath of Arsenal’s 3-1 home victory against Celtic in the Champions League qualifier, UEFA have looked into the incident surrounding the award of a penalty to Arsenal, and have decided to charge Eduardo with “deceiving the referee”
At the time, Arsenal were 2-0 up on aggregate with Celtic needing three away goals to secure the tie. The Croatian striker scored from the resulting penalty despite huge protests from the Celtic players.
New rules from UEFA suggest that this could lead to a two match ban for the striker for what would have been a yellow card offence if proven at the time. Replays are inconclusive, but enough for UEFA to make the charge , and examine the case on September 1st.
This has sparked huge debate on GoonersWorld, why not come and join the debate.
