Wenger blames Arsenal's immaturity for loss

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Matchday 3] Robert Lewandowski's late volley gave 2013 runner-up Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 win at Arsenal, ending the Gunners' 12-game unbeaten streak and spoiling the birthday of their 64-year-old manager.

After opening with two wins, Arsenal now finds itself tied for first place with Dortmund and Napoli with six points in Group F. Wenger was particularly upset with how his team let a point slip away at the end.

"We can only look at ourselves as not being mature enough in those situations," he said. "If you can't win the game, don't lose it."

Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan gave Dortmund the lead in the 16th minute, but Arsenal looked to be in good shape after Frenchman Olivier Giroud equalized in the 41st minute.

Arsenal has opened up a two-point lead in the English Premier League and played some of the best soccer of the early European season, but the Dortmund test was of a different level.

"Dortmund were very well organized to stop us from playing," added Wenger. "I must admit we were not as good as we have been and some of our players were not as fresh physically."

English star Jack Wilshere left the game in the second half feeling the effects of a bad ankle.
