Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner stunned the world last night – by scoring Wolfsburg’s winner in their 2-1 Europa League last 16 win over Inter Milan.

The Dane, who joined the Bundesliga side from Arsenal in the summer, climbed off the bench to net his third goal of the competition in the San Siro as Wolfsburg won the second leg giving them a 5-2 aggregate win, booking a place in the quarter-finals.
It’s fair to say Twitter was somewhat shocked to see Bendtner on the scoresheet.

Bendtner has actually scored a goal, this is enough for me. Goodnight world.
