Arsenal's dramatic FA Cup final victory against Hull City sparked wild celebrations from Gooners around the world. We asked Martin Eliceche for the lowdown on how South America greeted the result...
"The match is over and we are winners again after nine years - and we needed it. It truly was a day for the history books.
"At our meeting in Argentina, which totalled more than 70 people from all across the world (including Australia, USA, Germany, Norway and more), you could see the extreme pain in their faces as Hull went into their early two-goal lead.
"People were standing up on the tables, others on chairs, others pounced on people, beer flying through the air - we unloaded all of our emotions"
"Nobody expected it and it was a punch to the chin that left us cold, but no one lost faith. We encouraged the team with all our energy and the party was still on. We trusted them and the coaching staff.
"Then came Santi Cazorla's free kick, and it prompted an emotional celebration. After that it was Koscielny's goal and we could not believe it. When the match went to extra time, we could take it no longer. We went to the street to take a breath, we sat on the floor, the nerves were killing us!
"Then came the goal from Ramsey... 3-2 and the bar exploded. People were standing up on the tables, others on chairs, others pounced on people, beer flying through the air - we unloaded all of our emotions.
"At the full-time whistle, people were crying, screaming, hugging, jumpin... it was something unforgettable. We went to the British Embassy and we celebrated with red flares, many people came and smiled with us and it turned into a massive celebration.
"We are the FA Cup winner. A new era has begun, fasten your seatbelts... here we go."
