Arsenal keeper Fabianski: Shootout heroics were all instinct

Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski admits his Wembley heroics were all instinct.

The Poland goalkeeper saved twice in the FA Cup semifinal shootout win over Wigan Athletic.

"To be honest with you I did some homework but none of them [the Wigan penalty takers] were on my list!" he told Arsenal Player.

"The guys who stepped up to take penalties [were different] so I was just guessing. It was more intuition rather than my homework that I'd done.

"I was surprised that [Jordi] Gomez didn't step up as the first one. Then I saw Caldwell and Collison taking the penalties, so I was just guessing.

"I did look at YouTube and things like that, but I didn't see anything of Collison or Caldwell on there."
