His team succumbed against Luis Aragones' La Roja, but for him it was a memorable month as he lifted the UEFA Cup with Zenit Saint Petersburg and won the European Super Cup against Manchester United.
Major European powerhouses placed him on their radars and although Barcelona offered 15 million euros, according to Arshavin himself, it was the Gunners who finally signed him in January 2009 for a slightly higher figure.
With Arsenal he scored 31 times, producing an unforgettable performance at Anfield against Liverpool, scoring four goals in one of the best games in the history of the Premier League. แทง บอล ส เต็ ป
