A memorable evening for 18-year-old
Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe has made club history this evening after his goal against Qarabag in the Europa League.
The Gunners travelled to Azerbaijan in the hopes of bringing home a valuable three points in their Europa League group.
Qarabag are a side they were fully expected to beat and they did that emphatically in the end, even if it didn’t look so comfortable during the game.
Arsenal won the game 3-0 but at 1-0, the home side had several big chances to level but they spurned them all.
In the end, it was goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emile Smith Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi that sealed the win.
Incredibly, it was all of their first goals for the club.
That meant that all three opened their Arsenal account on the same night, a pretty amazing coincidence!
Though, it was Emile Smith Rowe’s goal that made club history.
Another young talent emerges
That is because the 18-year-old became the first player born after the year 2000 to score a goal for Arsenal.
That welcomed in a new generation of goalscorers at the Gunners and he will certainly be delighted with both that and his goal.

That wasn’t the only brilliant stat for the Englishman, as he became the youngest player to score a goal for Arsenal since Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain against Olympiakos in September 2011!
That’s certainly some good going but he will be hoping for many more in the future.
On a day where several unexpected names were called up to the England national team, another young English talent has been unearthed.
