Wojciech Szczesny pretends to drink beer that’s thrown onto field (Pictures)
You know how sports people sometimes like to use the phrase “just take what the opponent gives you?” On an afternoon where Arsenal defeated Manchester City 1-0 and Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny came away with a shutout, Szczesny decided to take that advice and apply it to the fans. As you can see from the photo above, a frustrated fan threw a beer onto the pitch in the 87th minute after Arsenal took a 1-0 lead late in the game. As you can see from the photo below, Szczesny proceeded to pick the beer up and pretend to take a swig.
Typically we see athletes turn the other way and ignore objects that are tossed onto the field, but Szczesny felt like staging a little celebration after it appeared his team had the game wrapped up. As Dirty Tackle mentioned, I hope for his sake it wasn’t urine. Knowing what we know about angry soccer fans, I kind of doubt one of them would waste half a beer.
