It took Folarin Balogun just 37 seconds to open his senior account after stepping off the bench against Molde on Thursday.
Our young forward underlined his predatory instincts with an accomplished finish - and now he says he will keep working for more opportunities.
"I’m feeling really happy, it shows that all the hard work I’ve put in over the years is just starting to pay off," Balogun told Arsenal.com. "It’s important that I keep working hard to enjoy more moments like this.
"I didn’t think that particular [break for the goal] was going to be my chance, but I always try to stay ready and I’m happy that on this occasion it paid off.
"It’s been good [to be involved], it’s nice to see the boss showing faith in me. It feels like this is good experience for me, I just need to keep on learning, keep on adding to my game and I’m happy that I could contribute today."
