Arsenal's Balogun Thrilled To Score His First Premier League 2 Goal Of The SeasonPublished: March 06, 2019
Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun was delighted to get on the scoresheet for the first time for the U23s this season as they fought back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Swansea City in the Premier League 2 on Monday night.
With the Gunners trailing 2-0, manager Freddie Ljungberg introduced the England U18s star at half-time, and he started the comeback when his deflected shot from 20 yards beat the Swans goalkeeper.
Speaking to arsenal.com, Balogun said : ''I just thought that we needed to add more tempo to the game and I wanted to make an impact.
''I knew that once we upped the tempo and grabbed the first goal we were always going to grab something from the game.
''At the end of the day I just want to help the team every week and if I can help with a goal or two every now and then I’ll be happy.''
Balogun has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Arsenal's youth teams this term, including 16 goals for the U18s in the U18 Premier League.
