Victor Moses scored in the 2017 Community Shield against Arsenal on Sunday, but his goal was cancelled out by Kolasinac and after 90 minutes, the Gunners went on to defeat the Premier League champions 4-1 on penalties.
The A-B-B-A new penalty format was used in the top flight of English club football for the first time, and it was Arsenal who finished the better of it.
Perhaps, the shootouts were the most exciting part of what was a “relatively dull” game as described by former Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh in a tweet after the first half.
Oliseh tweeted: Don’t you just love Ngolo Kanté & Alex Iwobi #CharityShield ? They put life into a relatively dull game. no?

For Chelsea it was a fourth consecutive defeat in the COmmunity Shield following defeats to Man Utd in 2010 (3-1), 2012 to Man City (3-2 ) and to Arsenal two years ago (1-0).
Also in action was Alex Iwobi, who starred for the better part of the first half and a thorn in the flesh of the Chelsea defenders until the 66th minute when he was replaced.
