Arsenal’s talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang worked his Wembley magic once again as they came from behind to beat Chelsea and win the FA Cup for a record 14th time.
The Gabon forward drew Arsenal level from the penalty spot before the break after he was fouled by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, then produced a moment of world-class finishing midway through the second half to make the defining contribution to the first behind-closed-doors FA Cup final.
Kagame, an passionate Arsenal fan, congratulated the team for the latest achievement but was quick to point out the club should now focus on winning “bigger things” in the future.
‘ ‘Bravo, Congrats ARSENAL for a well-deserved and needed win -FA CUP. We,FANS and supporters kept Faith in you…going forward let’s aim at much bigger things. WE CAN… !!!’’ kagame tweeted after the game.

Rwanda and Arsenal have a good relationship since the country moved to sponsor the Premier League giants, whose players display a ‘Visit Rwanda’ logo on their sleeves. The deal was signed on May 23, 2018
Malawi’s new President, Lazarus Chakwera, also took to his Twitter handle to send a message to his beloved Arsenal after winning the trophy.
“It feels great to see the Arsenal winning, a sweet victory snatched from the jaws of defeat, my favourite kind,” Chakwera wrote.
