Arsenal ace Nicolas Pepe scored a sensational backheel goal on international duty.

The Ivory Coast star combined with Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha for in a friendly with DR Congo.

It was a good night for both with Zaha also scoring a goal and providing an assist in Ivory Coast’s 3-1 win.

Gunners’ record signing Pepe has scored just once in ten games in all competitions for Arsenal since arriving from Lille this summer in a club record deal, with the winger yet to hit the heights of his spell in Ligue 1.

However, he showed what he’s capable of by netting a cheeky backheel to tuck in Zaha’s neat cutback.

After the ball was played across the goal, Pepe met it, tapping home with a back-heel to hand the home side a 2-0 lead in fine fashion.

We’re sure Gooners will be hoping to see him do that in an Arsenal shirt some time soon.
