Tomas Rosicky, Arsenal Score Bedazzling Team Goal Against Sunderland (GIF)

Tomas RosickyWhy work on defense when your attackers can conjure up these types of goals, right?

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky scored the third goal in his team’s 4-1 victory over Sunderland on Saturday, finishing a slick, passing move with aplomb.

In the 42nd minute, Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and embattled striker Olivier Giroud unlocked Sunderland’s defense with five passes in tight space before the Czech schemer dinked his shot over Sundarland goalkeeper Kieren Westwood.

The fabulous team goal was Rosicky’s first Premier League goal of the season. It put Arsenal ahead 3-0, en route to a comfortable victory.

Rosicky hadn’t scored a league goal since last April, but the 33-year-old ended his goal drought in spectacular fashion.

Rosicky’s goal was similar to the one Wilshere scored against Norwich in October. These moments of magic provide some defense for manager Arsene Wenger’s philosophy of attack-oriented soccer.
