Shakira posted a video of Arsenal fans singing ‘Waka Waka’

Shakira was delighted to hear Arsenal fans perform her legendary World Cup song "Waka Waka."

Shakira, a Colombian singer and songwriter, has demonstrated that she is a football lover just like everyone else. Waka Waka (This Time for Africa), the singer’s smash tune, was recently included in an Instagram story.

However, there was a little twist: the song was an Arsenal fan’s rendition of the original. supporters on social media, particularly Arsenal supporters, have been buzzing about Shakira’s post, which she captioned “Waka Waka @arsenal style.”

The chorus goes something like this: ‘Tsamina mina, eh, eh, Waka waka, eh, eh, 60 million down the drain, Kai Havertz scores again’. The cry gained popularity prior to the international break when opposing supporters mocked Kai Havertz for his dismal goal-scoring form.

Following a $82 million transfer from Chelsea, the 24-year-old produced unimpressive displays for Arsenal in the Premier League, scoring only twice. Kai Havertz once again silenced opposing supporters by scoring in the waning minutes of the game against Brentford. His match-winning goal delighted Arsenal fans, who serenaded him with their own rendition of the Waka Waka song. That is why Shakira referred to it as “the Arsenal style.”

Arsenal is back in action following the international break. The Gunners put up a poor display at the Gtech Community Stadium but came away with all three points right before the final whistle. Mikel Arteta restored Aaron Ramsdale to the starting XI after he had been replaced by David Raya (on loan from Brentford). The game got off to a shaky start, with Ramsdale making a blunder against Bryan Mbuemo but being saved by Declan Rice.

Arsenal had the opening chance of the game, with Gabriel Jesus forcing Mark Flekken into a stop. Arsenal believed they had broken the stalemate when Leandro Trossard’s header was ruled out for offside by VAR. Brentford improved in the second half, with Oleksandr Zinchenko’s goal-line clearance keeping Neal Maupay out. Kai Havertz, who came on in the 79th minute for Gabriel Martinelli, snatched all three points for the visitors.

Bukayo Saka’s pinpoint cross into the box was greeted by the German, who wonderfully placed his header at the near post. The ball rebounded through the legs of Brentford’s goalie and into the net. With Havertz’s goal, Arsenal surpassed Manchester City and Liverpool to grab first place. The club now has 30 points from 13 games, 1 more than Manchester City.
