Wenger - The goal I always dreamt of scoring

During his time at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has seen some incredible goals: from Dennis Bergkamp at Newcastle to Jack Wilshere against Norwich.

But there is one strike that will always remain close to his heart - and it has nothing to do with Arsenal.

“When I speak about team goals, I would say the goal Brazil scored where Pele gives the ball to his full-back, Carlos Alberto, and he scores in the 1970 World Cup final,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. 

“Especially because Carlos died [recently], it reminds me of when you are a kid, to discover things you would never imagine. 

“That kind of goal, team play or decision-making and calm in the final third, for me it’s an important quality.”
