On-loan Arsenal youngster Kelechi Nwakali has opened his goal scoring account at the Dutch club he is presently on loan at.

Nwakali recused VVV Venlo from defeat on Sunday as he scored a last-minute equaliser to deny FC Groningen victory in the tie that ended 1-1.

It was Mimoun Mahi that shot the host in front in the 15th minute and he could have doubled the lead for his team but blew away the penalty awarded three minutes into the second half.

That miss proved costly as Nwakali who came in as a 75th-minute substitute ensured VVV Venlo had a share of the spoils in the Week 4 tie; scoring a 90th-minute equaliser.

With Sunday's result are now eighth on the log while FC Groningen are 10th.
