Nigerian youngster reacts after making full Arsenal debut

Naija Players Abroad By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 14/12/2018

Nigerian youngster Bukayo Saka has reacted after making Arsenal full debut in the Europa League encounter at Emirate Stadium on Thursday night.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the only goal in the 1-0 victory in what was a dead-rubber game with the Gunners already assured of top spot in Group E as Laurent Koscielny made his comeback from an Achilles injury that has kept him sidelined since May.

The 17-year-old forward performance which caught the attention of Unai Emery and Arsenal academy graduate best moment was a delightful cross from which Eddie Nketiah headed home but the goal was rightly ruled out for offside.

And he came desperately close to scoring late on, only to be denied from close range by Qarabag keeper Vagner Da Silva after the tie the teenager tweeted.

Saka made his debut off the bench away to Vorskla Poltava last month but was excited to step out at the Emirates Stadium to represent the senior side for the first time.
