Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after Miguel Azeez posted footage of a goal he scored against Chelsea’s Under-18 side.
The 18-year-old waltzed his way past four blue shirts before firing a rocket of a shot into the bottom right corner with his weaker left foot.
It was a Lionel Messi-like finish from the teenager, who looks set to be the next big thing to come out of Hale End.
Azeez has already made his first-team debut for the Gunners, playing seven minutes of the Europa League clash against Dundalk in October.
Given the talent he displayed in his 23-second video, it’s no surprise Mikel Arteta wanted to get him involved.
The present might seem quite bleak for Arsenal, but the future is very encouraging.
The Gunners have a tremendous core of players at a great age.
In Kieran Tierney, Gabriel Magalhães, William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Folarin Balogun, there is an exciting crop of players yet to hit their peak.
Add Azeez to that bunch, and the future looks very bright for Arsenal.
For those of you who don’t know much about Azeez, Football London made an interesting claim back in October.
They wrote that the wonderkid models his game on Barcelona maestro Sergio Busquets, which is very interesting to know.
When scoring goals such as the one against Chelsea U18s, Azeez might think he’s getting too good for that level of football.
However, he should be encouraged by Arteta’s frequent use of Hale End products, such as Saka and Smith Rowe.
His chance will come.
Let’s see how the Arsenal fans on Twitter reacted to his goal…
