Arsenal fans react to Wellington Silva's first goal in English football on Twitter

The Brazilian is currently on loan at Bolton Wanderers.

Arsenal were not in action today but plenty of their young talents, past and present, were. Benik Afobe, Havard Nordtveit and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas all found the back of net.

Wellington Silva, one player currently still with the club, also found the net.

The Brazilian scored his first goal in English football for his current loan club Bolton Wanderers in a 4-3 defeat against Queens Park Rangers.

The Brazilian was signed by Arsenal in 2011 from Fluminense but has not yet made his first-team debut for the club as he has struggled to get a work permit. Instead he has spent his time in Spain, with loan spells at Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria.

Now he has been granted the chance to play in the UK and will spend the season on loan at the Macron Stadium.

The Brazilian youth international has already impressed at Bolton and is now a goalscorer for the club, where he will hope to continue his progress and eventually make it into the Arsenal first-team.
