VIDEO: Arsenal wonderkid Chuba Akpom's sensational skill in pre-season friendly

Chuba Akpom

Arsenal youngster provided the highlight of the day against Boreham Wood Town.

Arsenal played their first pre-season game of the season at the weekend, winning 2-0 over non-league Boreham Wood Town.

It was very much an exhibition game for the Gunners, with Arsene Wenger changing his entire side at half-time.

One of the players to get a run out was teenage striker Chuba Akpom, who provided fans with a dazzling piece of skill to leave two of the home side's defenders bamboozled.

It's well worth watching and re-watching, and confirms the talent the 18-year-old possesses is not just limited to his prolific goalscoring.

Akpom scored on last season's pre-season tour and will be hoping for further chances this off-season, as he continues to aim to show Arsene Wenger he is worthy consideration for first team opportunities in 2014/15.

The youngster scored 10 goals for Arsenal's youth teams last season, and went on loan to League One sides Brentford and Coventry City.
