Arsenal will play Ostersund in the last 32 of the Europa League.
The Swedish club are of course managed by Englishman Graham Potter, the subject of many articles in the British press over the last two years, including this one.
Former York defender Potter has taken Ostersund from the fourth division to the top-ranked Allsvenskan in six years.
Ostersund were founded on 31 October 1996…after Arsene Wenger took over at Arsenal!

The 42-year-old has earned comparisons with Roy Hodgson – who himself managed in Scandinavia in his formative years – and this will be his first clash against English opposition.
The draw also saw Celtic come out against Zenit St Peterburg.
