Frida Maanum scored an outrageous goal for Arsenal against Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening.
Bayern won 1-0 in the first leg of their Women’s Champions League quarter-final clash.
Arsenal were hoping to turn the tie on its head in the return leg at the Emirates Stadium.
They managed to restore parity in the tie thanks to Maanum’s stunner 19 minutes into the match in north London.
Arsenal were knocking the ball about beautifully with some one-touch football.
Leah Williamson produced a lovely back-heel to set up Maanum and the move culminated with the Norwegian belting the ball into the top corner from outside of the box.
The goal was so outrageous that it was being widely shared on social media. View it below…

It’s fair to say Wright went wild.
He was celebrating once again shortly after when Arsenal scored their second goal of the night courtesy of Stina Blackstenius.
