Mesut Ozil brought Vasil Levski Stadium to its feet with his sensational winner against Ludogorets - and Aaron Ramsey had one of the best seats in the house.
The Wales international had played his part in Olivier Giroud’s equaliser before being substituted and admitted it was difficult not to get carried away on the bench when Ozil received Mohamed Elneny’s pass.
"I was just saying, ‘Shoot, shoot!’ so many times but he kept faking," said Ramsey. "Mesut is a quality player and it was a great finish. He was so calm in that situation and it topped off a great evening for us.
"I’m sure a lot of players would have shot first time but he made a couple of their players look a bit silly, sliding on the floor, but it was a great finish and we are just delighted to come away with the win in the end.
"This team has been together for a while now with a couple of more additions - we have brought in some really good quality as well. We know what we are all about. We have been on a good run now for a long period of time now.
"At the back end of last season, we finished really strongly and we’ve carried that on into this season. The team is full of confidence at the moment."
