The former Arsenal man shone on Tuesday night for Sevilla.
Samir Nasri scored his first Champions League goal for Sevilla on Tuesday night.
The former Arsenal winger - on loan at the Spanish club from Manchester City - grabbed the only goal of the game as the Liga outfit edged out Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia.
It was the 29-year-old's third goal for the club since leaving the Premier League on a season-long loan, having previously netted twice for Jorge Sampaoli's side in Liga action so far.
Nasri, who joined Arsenal in 2008 and left in 2011 after a superb 2010-11 campaign, rolled back the years with a stellar overall performance, and some Gunners fans were left raving about the Frenchman on Twitter afterwards

Nasri is doing well. Sevilla manager recently said "When he has the ball, the team breaths". Just scored for them in the #UCL too— Mo_AFC (@Arsenal89_Mo) October 18, 2016
Imagine Nasri on one of our wings. I'd welcome him back with open arms. https://t.co/Sa00HrzrvR— pulisic_fan (@Kecion_AFC) October 18, 2016
Had no idea nasri was at sevilla. Would be perfect at Arsenal now too— Sam (@s4mlu3dke) October 18, 2016
@rackedupshawwty Nasri is world class, who doesn't want a word class player that fits into Arsenal perfectly in their team— Olly (@Giroudesquee) October 18, 2016
Oh man, this is why I wanted Nasri back at Arsenal for that left-sided playmaker position. What a talent. https://t.co/KgwxBlC00h— Lewis (@LGAmbrose) October 18, 2016
I'd 100% take Nasri back at Arsenal. Still one of my favourite players of all time but he has to wear the snood and take the fine every game— VK (@MrVietNguyen) October 18, 2016
It appears as if absence has made the heart grow fonder for some Arsenal supporters, given his acrimonious departure five years ago.
His decision to join City rankled with fans of the North London club by virtue of the fact he left immediately posted his first and last productive season in an Arsenal shirt.
He only had one year to go on his contract and manager Arsene Wenger decided to let him leave, which proved a good move for Nasri as he won the Premier League title in his first season at the Etihad, and another two years later.
