In-form Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny assisted all Arsenal's goals in a 2-2 Europa League quarter-final return-leg draw at Russia's CSKA Moscow on Thursday to seal passage to the competition's semis.
Going into the game leading 4-1 from the first-leg, Arsenal fell to two goals from Fedor Chelov and Kirill Nababkin on 39 and 50 minutes - with both players scoring on the rebound following initial stops from keeper Petr Cech.
With the Russians needing a single goal to go through, England international Danny Welbeck made sure the hosts would face an uphill climb to get back into the game with a goal in the 75th minute.
A clever through-ball from Elneny sent the ex-Manchester United frontman thorugh on goal before the latter exquisitely netted past the keeper to make things difficult for the home side.
It was not the end of the Elneny's contributions though, as he was involved once again - this time deep into stoppage time.
Leading a counter attack for his side, the Egyptian sent midfield partner Aaron Ramsey through on goal near the half-way line - before the Welshman scored his side's second and made sure they march through to the semis.
