Arsenal starlet nutmegs three players before scoring

Published Add your comment

Arsenal striker Benik Afobe has had a rough time of it recently, but the 20-year-old scored a magnificent individual solo goal on Tuesday night.

Afobe picked the ball up 25 yards from goal before slaloming his way through the Norwich City defence, nutmegging two players and sliding the ball between the goalkeeper's legs to score a sensational individual effort.

It was only his second appearance since returning from a cruciate knee ligament injury - and the goal, scored on the stroke of half time, proved the difference between the two teams.

The England Under-21 international, who turned professional at Arsenal in 2010 but has yet to play a senior match for the Gunners, could now be loaned out in January.

The Kent-born striker has so far had loan spells at Huddersfield Town, Reading, Bolton and Millwall.
