Arsenal 4-2 Vorskla Poltava: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scores twice in Europa League win


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal began their Europa League campaign with a 4-2 win against Vorskla Poltava.

The 29-year-old scored the only goal of the first half, sweeping home in the 32nd minute after a great Arsenal break, before Danny Welbeck nodded home the second three minutes after the interval.

Aubameyang got his second in the 56th minute with a delightful curling effort, and the tally was added to by substitute Mesut Ozil (74) as he tapped home into an open net.

Two minutes later, Ukrainian side Vorskla pulled one back as captain Vladimir Chesnakov swept home and Vyacheslav Sharpar scored their second with the last kick of the game, despite Pavlo Rebenok appearing to be offside in the build-up.
