Arsenal won the FA Community Shield on Saturday in penalty kicks over Liverpool, winning the shootout 5-4 after regulation ended at 1-1.
The Gunners put on a clinical display with their attempts, making all five with brilliantly placed shots, while Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster was as the lone taker to miss, rocking his shot off the crossbar.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored the opening goal, put away the winner to start the celebrations.
In regulation, Arsenal scored in the first half and Liverpool equalized with less than 20 minutes to go.
Aubameyang made it 1-0 for the Gunners just 12 minutes in with a brilliantly placed ball from the top of the box to the far post, while it was Takumi Minamino’s shot from close that brought things level in the 73rd minute.
There was no extra time, with rules stating action goes right to penalty kicks.
It was a deserved result in the end for the Gunners, who are riding a wave after winning the FA Cup final over Chelsea earlier this month.-CBSSports
