New signing Fabio Vieira starred for Premier League leaders Arsenal during the 3-0 win at home to Norwegian champions Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League. Arsenal played hosts to Bodo in their second Europa League group stage game of the season and Vieira emerged as the star of the show with one goal and one assist.

Fabio Vieira was a surprise signing at Arsenal this summer after they reached an agreement with Portuguese champions FC Porto. The two teams agreed an initial fee of £30m for Vieira plus £4m in add-ons. Vieira is a Portuguese junior international and he would be hoping to force his way into the Portugal squad for the World Cup 2022 tournament. Portugal would be hoping to win their first World Cup title at the World Cup 2022 tournament on Qatari soil. The immediate past European champions are not one of the favourites for the tournament in Qatar. Argentina, France and Brazil are the top three favourites for the World Cup 2022 tournament.

Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira started the Europa League Group A opener with hosts FC Zurich for the Gunners and it ended in a 2-1 away win for his team. The Portuguese star retained his place in the starting XI for the visit of Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt. The home clash with Bodo was the second Europa League game of the season for Arsenal. Apart from Arsenal and Bodo/Glimt, FC Zurich and PSV Eindhoven are the other teams in Group A.

Arsenal had too much quality for Bodo/Glimtafter they scored three goals without conceding a goal. The Gunners opened the scoring through Eddie Nketiah midway into the first half before Rob Holding doubled the lead for the home team four minutes later off the assist from Fabio Vieira. Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira sealed the 3-0 victory for Arsenal with the third goal in the second half off the assist from Gabriel Jesus came off the bench.
