Eric Lichaj gets his dog after heroics for Nottingham Forest

U.S. international Eric Lichaj scored a header and stunning volley to help Nottingham Forest knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup.
Nottingham Forest's Eric Lichaj comes close in his quest to get a puppy, Mario Balotelli feuds with his brother over FIFA and more in the Sweeper.

Eric Lichaj got a dog.

Two days after scoring a brace for Nottingham Forest to knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup, the U.S. international got what he really wanted out of his career performance.

Lichaj explained to BT Sport after his side's 4-2 win on Sunday that his wife, Kathryn Lichaj, had promised to allow him to get a dog if he scored a hat trick this season.

And though he fell one goal short against the Gunners, his online campaign to #GetEricADog appears to have gotten Mrs. Lichaj to cave, as he showed off his new pooch on Tuesday.

And that name, Gunner ... how does that make you feel, Arsenal fans?
