Folarin Balogun who is of Nigerian descent grabbed the headlines last night as he scored his first senior goal for Arsenal in their 3-0 victory away to Molde in the Europa League.

Balogun actually found the net just moments after coming on for Arsenal to justify the faith reposed in him by the manager.

The striker is proud of his instant impact and he is looking forward to more with the Gunners.

Balogun, who was making his second appearance for the first-team, was brought on in the 82nd minute and managed to score after being set up by Emile Smith Rowe.

Arsenal endured a torrid first 45 minutes before they took control of proceedings in the second half.

Joe Willock set up Nicolas Pepe to open the scoring and Willock was also the provider for Reiss Nelson’s goal, with the latter producing an impressive performance.

Ben Cottrell and Miguel Azeez received their first senior call-ups but remained unused, while Karl Hein was also on the bench.

Having won all four of their group games so far, Arsenal have effectively secured their place in the knockout stages of the competition with two games to spare.
