Mkhitaryan wins Goal of the Week crown

Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s goal in Saturday’s 3-2 win against SV Werder Bremen has been voted the best in Matchday 34.

According to , everything about Borussia Dortmund’s third goal in Saturday’s 3-2 win against SV Werder Bremen was executed to perfection: from Marco Reus’ lay-off, Shinji Kagawa’s lofted forward pass, Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first touch and, of course, the Armenian international’s audacious chipped finish over the advancing Koen Casteels.

A hefty 61 per cent of the post-Matchday poll was the least it deserved – and that’s saying something.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
