Southampton Huddle

Cuco Martina scored a stunning goal for Southampton against Arsenal in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Francis Benali has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Cuco Martina’s goal for Southampton against Arsenal in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Martina opened the scoring for the Saints against the Gunners at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday evening. The Curacao international found the target with a sensational curling effort from 30 yards.

Former Southampton full-back Benali has revelled in Martina’s heroics, while ex-Curacao national team coach Patrick Kluivert has also congratulated him following the 4-0 win.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at St. Mary’s Stadium, hosts Southampton had just 35% of the possession, took 14 shots of which only five were on target, and earned three corners.

The Saints are 12th in the Premier League table at the moment with 24 points from 18 matches.

Ronald Koeman’s side will return to league action on Monday evening when they take on West Ham United away from home at the Boleyn Ground in London.
