Arsene Wenger, Arsenal F.C. coach, had said F.C Cologne, who were making a comeback in a major European competition after a gap of over 20 years, had their night spiled because of fans. In the post-match press conference, he said, “ had to think if we play tomorrow at what time do we want to play, do we play next week but they had the Bundesliga again midweek and we had a League Cup game midweek as well. Alexis Sanchez scored a stunning goal as Arsenal F.C. came from behind to beat Cologne 3-1 in a Europa League clash on Thursday that was delayed for an hour due to crowd trouble. Kick-off in the Group H opener at the Emirates Stadium was put back until 9:05pm local time in the interests of “crowd safety” after problems caused by thousands of ticketless Cologne supporters arriving at the ground.
