Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny Takes Kick in the Face from Fenerbahce's Pierre Webo

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny was just trying to do his job at the heart of their defence when he got caught by a savage kick to the face from Fenerbahce's Pierre Webo.

Watch as Webo's boot flies up to meet Koscielny high up the right-hand side of his cheek. The challenge, deemed a dangerous play, yielded a yellow card.

It left Koscielny shaken and needing to be substituted.

Arsene Wenger's men came desperate to avoid a potentially devastating defeat in the first leg of their Champions League qualifying playoff.

They ended up with a hugely important 3-0 victory.
