Comments:

Sylvain Wiltord scored just before half time to give Arsenal a chance, after being 2-0 down. Henry's penalty was first saved by Virt and Wiltord was on hand to score the rebound. A great defensive performance by Shakhtar in the second half, including some strange goalkeeping by virt, held Arsenal until ex Aston Villa defender Keown popped up at the end to show his forwards how it's done by scoring two close range goals.
