Hosam Aiesh becomes the first Palestinian to score in the Europa League

Östersunds- the plucky Swedish club that was on nobody's radar two years ago- nearly pulled off the mother of all upsets at the Emirates Stadium last night.

Last week, Hosam Aiesh was an injury scratch as Arsenal made easy work of the Allsvenskan side in the Arctic circle. An 0-3 first leg score, featured a late penalty save from Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina leaving the Swedish minnows needing a miracle to progress to the Round of 16 of the Europa League.

That miracle seemed to be on the cards 24 minutes into the second leg- and the man to start the comeback? Hosam Aiesh.
