Many Arsenal fans have been lauding an under-18s player who scored in the FA Youth Cup win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Young Guns won 4-3 with supporters raving over midfield talent Miguel Azeez after the youngster scored a brilliant third goal for Ken Gillard’s side. He smashed in a volley after the ball was lofted into the penalty box, striking home from close range (via Arsenal).
The player was only recently included in Mikel Arteta’s squad for the latter stages of the Europa League, a sign of his quick progression through the ranks at the Emirates Stadium (via The Mirror). His rapid rise within the academy has seen him appear for the under-23s this season despite the fact he is just 17 years of age (via Transfermarkt). Fans were left lavishing the central midfielder with praise after he scored in the win last night as they took to Twitter to react, with one fan complimenting him as an ‘animal‘. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
Man like Azeez🔥
I’m expecting some heavy Miguel Azeez propaganda soon, especially with his inclusion in the Europa League squad. https://t.co/GE2hP17xHG
