Eduardo da Silva's Comeback Pictures

Eduardo has described his goalscoring return for Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday as "the best day of my life". Eduardo, who had been out since breaking his leg in February 2008, scored twice in his side's 4-0 win over Cardiff in their fourth-round face-off.

"It was the best day of my life - it was a special moment to score, very emotional," said the Croatian gunner. "I celebrated by kissing my wedding ring - because my wife and daughter and family supported me through this."

Eduardo, who also played for Croatia last week, opened the scoring in the 20th minute with a header from Carlos Vela's cross and later added Arsenal's third goal from the penalty spot.

Below are pictures from of Eduardo da Silva's dream return.
