About Arsenal
An arsenal is a place where arms and ammunition are made, maintained and repaired, stored, or issued, in any combination, whether privately or publicly owned. Arsenal and armoury (British English) or armory (American English) are mostly regarded as synonyms, although subtle differences in usage exist.
A sub-armory is a place of temporary storage or carrying of weapons and ammunition, such as any temporary post or patrol vehicle that is only operational in certain times of the day.

Two late goals from Paolo Dybala ensured the Old Lady of Turin stayed top of the group but talk afterwards was about Ronaldo’s earlier miss.

With the teams locked at 0-0, ex-Chelsea man Juan Cuadrado whipped a ball across the box from the right hand side straight into Ronaldo’s path but incredibly the ex-Real Madrid man skewed it over the bar at the far post.

Replays showed the 34-year-old was in an offside position but that did not stop fans from laying into him online.

Francisco tweeted: “Should retire now, he’s past it.”

Other users claimed the miss was “absolutely shocking” despite the fact the ball was travelling at some pace.

And Hassan added: “Hazard and now Ronaldo showing their support for Pepe. Just GOAT things.”
