Kristoffer Olsson scored in Arsenal's pre-season friendly win on Saturday.

Arsenal's Swedish midfielder Kristoffer Olsson has sent a message on Twitter following his goal-scoring appearances for the Gunners on Saturday.

Olsson scored the first in a 2-0 victory against Boreham Wood, finding the net with a wonderful dink over the opposing goalkeeper after good link-up play with Tomas Rosicky.

Arsenal would go on to score a second courtesy of Benik Afobe, after he won and converted a penalty.

Olsson is a 19-year-old central midfielder who has made one senior appearance for Arsene Wenger's side to date, in last season's League Cup match against West Bromwich Albion.

He will be hoping for more chances in the coming campaign, but for now he just seems happy to have started his pre-season in such impressive style.

"So happy to start the season like this, with a goal and a win," he wrote.  "Thank y'all for the support!"
