England-born Ghanaian starlet Edward Nketiah continues to enhance his scoring reputation as he grabbed his FIFTH goal in two games for England’s U19 side in the Euro U19 campaign.
The 18-year-old Arsenal kid powered Paul Simpson’s Cabs to a decent win over their rigid opponents on Saturday evening.
It took a splendid free-kick from Mason Mount to break the deadlock with 20 minutes remaining at Stara Zagora in Bulgaria.
Iceland equalised thanks to Daniel Hafsteinsson’s scruffy shot, with goalkeeper Ryan Schofield left exposed.
Then the moment arrived for the Ghanaian teenager to show his quality in front of goal as Jadon Sancho set him up for a close range finish less than a minute after they’d conceded.
Nketiah’s superb form has seen him score FOUR times for England on Thursday against Faroe Islands and he perpetuated his scoring run with yet another finish.
Arsenal have given him a pay rise after he climbed off the bench to score twice to seal the victory over Norwich City in the Carabao Cup last month.
