Arsenal’s FA Cup win celebrated by Atiku, Aregbesola, others.

Accolades have been coming in from different parts of the world for Arsenal F.C., after it lifted it 14th FA Cup, Pierre-Emerick struck twice to beat Chelsea 2-1 in the final on Saturday.

Recognized Nigerians including religious leaders and politicians as well as other football enthusiasts have since painted social media red, showering encomiums on the Gunners who gave Frank Lampard’s men an unforgettable loss at an empty Wembley stadium last night.

Before this year’s win, Arsenal lifted the trophy in 1930, 1936, 1950, 1971, 1979, 1993, 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014, 2015, and 2017.

The RICHENTBLOG had earlier reported that Christian Pulisic gave Chelsea the dream start but the Blues unravelled after Aubameyang was brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta inside the area and converted the resulting penalty.

A brilliant finish from Aubameyang 23 minutes from time then earned Mikel Arteta silverware in his first season as Arsenal boss before Chelsea were controversially reduced to 10 men when Mateo Kovacic was shown an extremely soft second yellow card.

Arteta has gained plenty of plaudits for his tactical nous during his first eight months in a managerial role and the Spaniard managed to reorganise the Gunners during the first-half drinks break to change the momentum of the game.

Commenting on last night’s victory, the Lead Pastor, Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, tweeted, “Congratulations Arsenal, FA Cup Champions!”

 Rauf Aregbesola, Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, enthused, “We fight with dignity, and win with pride. Yes, red is the colour of champions.
