Arsenal’s Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell has again reminded fans at the Emirates of his existence this weekend as the forward registered an impressive four assists as Olympiakos battered OFI Crete on Sunday.
After conceding early doors to the visitors, goals from Mitroglou (2), Holebas, Maniatis and Yatabaré turned the game for Olympiakos, however their man of the match was Arsenal’s on-loan striker Joel Campbell who laid on four of the five goals.
The 21-year-old striker, who has yet to be given the chance to impress at Arsenal having been signed by Arsene Wenger back in 2011, showed a range of crossing and passing abilities as he teed up his teammates against Crete.
Aside from his assists, Campbell also reduced OFI to ten men when he lured a reckless tackle from Christos Bourbos midwy through the second half as the forward threatened to launch another Olympiakos attack.
