Arsenal teenager scores sensational hat-trick to lead country's under-21 side to victory

Kristoffer Olsson

Arsenal youngster Kristoffer Olsson scored a sensational hat-trick to take Sweden to a narrow win over Turkey at under-21 level.

Arsenal youngster Kristoffer Olsson netted a super hat-trick for Sweden's under-21 side against Turkey.

Olsson scored three for Sweden only for Turkey to hit back, and Oscar Hiljemark hit an injury-time winner to clinch a 4-3 win.

The victory takes Sweden's youngsters into the play-offs for the tournament next summer, with the crucial fixtures to be played later this year.

Olsson reacted on Twitter to his sensational performance, hailing the dream result.

The youngster's talent is undeniable, but he has found the transition into Arsenal's first team hard to come by, after a sole Capital One Cup appearance last season at West Brom.

After hinting at a desire for a step up from Arsenal's under-21 side in August, Olsson clinched a loan to Danish side FC Midtjylland on deadline day.

As he heads prepares to make that venture a success and get himself noticed by Arsene Wenger, the 19-year-old has given himself the ultimate confidence boost.
