Nigerian star Folarin Balogun has sent a message after making Arsenal debut in the 3-0 win over Dundalk in the Europa League encounter.
The 19-year-old forward finally made his debut for the Gunners when Mikel Arteta gave him a cameo after replacing Eddie Nketiah with 16 minutes left to play at Emirate Stadium on Thursday night.
In the process, Balogun became the 876th player to represent Arsenal in a first-team outing as Gunners bounced back from defeat by Leicester City last weekend.
The United States-born star reacted on Twitter after the game.
A real honour to make my debut tonight. Thank you to everyone for the messages! Journey is just beginning…🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/OholEhPzA2

Balogun will be hoping for more game time with Arsenal despite he is out of contract at Emirate Stadium next summer.
