Lightning-quick forward Nigel Neita’s call-up to the full Jamaica squad came as a welcome surprise - and demonstrated how much he progressed last season.
The striker made 22 appearances for Steve Bould’s youth team - often on the left flank - before making inroads into the reserves with three substitute appearances.
Born in London, Nigel was originally part of the Millwall set-up before joining Arsenal. He signed his first professional contract with the Club on the eve of the 2010/11 campaign.Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
