Arsenal fans go wild over Tavares’ effort for Portugal but want his post moved

ARSENAL supporters were delighted with Nuno Tavares’ performance for Portugal’s U21s in their 11-0 win over Liechtenstein.

Some gunners are even asking that the left-back, 21, be deployed as a STRIKER after his goal against the minnows of Europe.

Playing at his usual position, Tavares opened the scoring for Portugal’s U21s with a left-footed strike against Liechtenstein.

His team took a 9-0 lead at halftime and added two more goals after the break … just to put an end to lingering doubts.

Arsenal fans on social media were in awe of Tavares’ strike, with a tweet: “Sometimes I feel like this guy can play as a striker.”

While another wrote: “His left foot reminds me of a certain Lukas Podolski.

And a fan tweeted: “Not shocked by the goal, the guy is actually a ball player.”

Arsenal signed Tavares from Benfica in July and he has made four Premier League appearances so far for his new employers.


The Portuguese have yet to score a competitive goal for the Gunners but have found the back of the net in a friendly against Rangers.

Tavares is currently the squad’s second-choice left-back behind Kieran Tierney, 24, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.

A critical Arsenal fan wrote: “He’s actually technically better, more athletic and a bigger goal threat than Tierney.

“But I’m not sure of his stamina yet. This is by no means an indictment against our beloved Kieran.

Tavares represented Portugal at the U18, U19 and U21 levels and is considered by many in his homeland as a future star of the national team.
