Arsenal fans would be forgiven for switching off during the international break, but goalkeeper Karl Hein really grabbed the attention on Wednesday night.

The Gunners have been dismal in the Premier League, losing all three of their games so far this season.

Arsenal supporters have likely just wanted to avoid football over the last week or so, but some of their players have been shining with their countries.

New signing Takehiro Tomiyasu excelled for Japan, and goalkeeper Hein has now followed suit with Estonia.

Hein started on Wednesday night as Estonia took on Wales in Cardiff, and helped his country claim a valuable 0-0 draw.

Hein made save after save, keeping Wales at bay with a string of stops.

Gareth Bale had a header brilliantly saved by Hein, who then saved Tyler Roberts when the Leeds man was clean through on goal.

Bale then went on a mazy run before forcing Hein into another save, with the teenager working hard to keep his clean sheet intact.

Hein joined Arsenal from Nomme United in his native Estonia back in 2018, but has yet to actually make his first-team debut.

Fans across Twitter – whether they supported Arsenal, Estonia or somebody else – were blown away by Hein’s performance.

Some believe Hein is better than Bernd Leno, and should take the Germain’s spot in the Arsenal squad moving forward.

Others praised Hein for a ‘brilliant’ and ‘fantastic’ display, noting that he was ‘terrorising’ Gareth Bale all night by making save after save in an ‘absolutely superb’ showing.
