VIDEO: Pepe scores a 'worldie' for Arsenal against Brighton on Saturday
Saturday proved to be an up and down day for Arsenal, which suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Brighton on the road.
Arsenal jumped out to a 1-0 lead thanks to Pepe, but couldn't hold on. To make matters worse, goalie Bernd Leno went down with what looks to be a season-ending injury.
While the morale is a bit low for the Gunners right now, the same can't be said for young star Nicolas Pepe. The winger opened the scoring against Brighton with the textbook definition of a world class goal.

Wow! What a goal from the Ivory Coast standout. Pepe bended that ball in perfectly, giving the Brighton keeper no chance at keeping his shot from not finding the back of the net.
That was a 'worldie' no doubt. Unfortunately for the Gunners, that amazing goal wasn't enough for the team to get three points. Next up for Arsenal will be a battle with Southampton on June 25.
