Video: Theo Walcott Grabs His and Arsenal’s Second After Horrific Goalkeeping Error

BATE Borisov are struggling to keep up with Arsenal’s pace and power in the Europa League tonight, with Theo Walcott giving his side a 2-0 lead.

Walcott got on the end of Jack Wilshere’s cross to give Arsene Wenger’s side an early lead in the first-half.

Arsenal have since scored a third goal through Rob Holding, the defender’s first since signing from Bolton last year.

However, the home side replied with a strike of their own almost immediately, with Mirko Ivanić nodding the ball beyond David Ospina.
