In the end he dabbed the ball to the nearest defender. This is a marvellously open game now, amid an achingly taut atmosphere! Cech has just had to fling himself across his goal to tip a curling yard shot by Fortounis around the post.
That nearly sealed it for Arsenal! Campbell again did brilliantly, hooking in a cross that found its way to Walcott at the far post after Giroud went down in suspicious circumstances.

It was just the start the reigning Greek champions wanted and it went from bad to worse for Arsenal when Fabianksi injured his knee and had to be carried off on a stretcher after 25 minutes following a melee inside the visitors penalty area.
Fabianski's exit paved the way for Vito Mannone - whose last outing was on loan at Hull in April - to make a rare appearance.
But the year-old Italian keeper was guilty of the blunder which allowed the Greeks to double their lead in the 36th minute. Mannone was left embarrassed after racing out to the edge of his area to head clear under pressure from Kevin Mirallas - only then to make a complete hash of attempting to scissor-kick the ball clear when it was returned over him by Fuster.
Arsenal were fortunate to go in at the interval down as Djourou gave the ball away to Giannis Maniatis in the penalty area, but his curling effort was held by Mannone.
Wenger was forced into another change when Santos had to be helped off with what looked like a leg injury, replaced by year-old Spaniard Ignasi Miquel.
And Miquel made an immediate impact when the substitute's floated cross was chested down by Chamakh and Benayoun drove the ball into the far corner in the 58th minute.
Mannone then almost hit the self-destruct button again as he failed to collect a loose ball when Thomas Vermaelen stood off - and somehow Modesto headed wide of an open goal from six yards.
But Arsenal's misery was complete when Modesto tapped home after Olof Mellberg's header came back off the post in the 89th minute.
However, it was still not enough to take Olympiakos through after the late drama in Germany where Marseille scored twice in the closing stages to defeat Borussia Dortmund.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: He looks like he will be out for a while. Hopefully Santos will not be too long but, for Saturday against Everton, he looks to be short.
We have as well Vermaelen who can play in his position. I don't think we had the right tactical approach. Many of the players did not have experience in the Champions League so were a bit surprised by pace of game.
We exposed them with our lack of quality in the passes we gave them and they were quite brave. The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.
