[Alexandre Lacazette explains reaction to Arsenal teammates’ celebration after goal vs Newcastle] I am really, really happy because I waited for this moment for a long time. As well, I am touched because of the way all my team-mates reacted when I scored that goal. It means a lot to me and a lot for the spirit we have in the team. This is good. It was really hard and complicated, because sometimes I had some games with no chances, sometimes I missed or the goalkeeper saved it. Of course for a striker it is always hard to not score, but it happens in football. Hopefully it is the last time for me

It was hard, and a difficult game, we are lucky I think
