Gunners shoot first for England

The irony of Arsenal becoming the first English team to reach
the Champions League round of 16 was not lost on manager Arsene Wenger
after his team beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium on
Wednesday to seal top spot in Group F.
The 62-year-old Frenchman, who declared his "love and commitment" to the
club before the game, gave a sheepish grin as he admitted "surprise" at
Arsenal's stunning turnaround in form following their disastrous start
to the season.
"I have to be cautious what I say," he replied when asked if he was
astonished that Arsenal had qualified while Premier League rivals
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea remained unsure of their
places in the knockout stage.
