2004-born defender of Nigerian descent trains with Arsenal first team pre-Bodo/Glimt

Manager Mikel Arteta invited 2004-born central defender of Nigerian descent Zach Awe to train with the first team on Wednesday, their final workout before Thursday's UEFA Europa League clash against Norwegian opponents Bodo/Glimt at the Emirates Stadium in London. 


Awe trained with Arsenal's first team stars such as Bukayo Saka, Ben White, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli and Granit Xhaka at London Colney today. 


He has been registered on Arsenal's List B for the Europa League as he is classed as an U21 player. 

A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 2001 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday 


Awe has received one call-up for a first team game, against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on February 10, 2022.


In the current season, the Hale Ender has started every single game played by Arsenal U21s in the Premier League 2, helping them remain unbeaten after seven matches in the youth league. 


Bodo/Glimt are topping Group A of the Europa League with four points but have played one more game than Arsenal, whose matchday two fixture with PSV  originally scheduled for September 15 was postponed.
