Arsenal's Nigerian Midfielder Scores Must-See Goal Against Aston Villa U18
Nigerian midfielder Miguel Azeez scored the pick of the goals as Arsenal registered a comprehensive 5-1 victory against Aston Villa in the U18 Premier League on Saturday, August 17.

Three minutes before half-time, Azeez opened his account for the 2019-2020 season with a fine strike from just outside the box.

The first year scholar was involved in the build-up to the goal and finished off a fine pass from Romanian attacking midfielder Catalin Cirjan to give the young Gunners a 3-1 lead in the 42nd minute.

Arsenal were impressed with Azeez's goal so much so that they posted a clip on Twitter  and asked their supporters to talk about the goal from the midfielder who sported the number four jersey against Aston Villa.

The video has been watched more than 157,000 times since it was uploaded on Sunday, August 18 and several fans have praised the skills of the Nigerian wonderkid.

Miguel Azeez has already agreed a three-year professional contract at Arsenal and an official announcement is expected next month when he turns seventeen.
