‘I never thought it'd feel this good!'

Alex Iwobi says he was in shock when he scored his first senior goal in Arsenal’s Emirates Cup victory against Lyon.

The teenage forward started the match against the Ligue 1 side and opened his account with a fine first-time finish as the Gunners ran out 6-0 winners.

Iwobi was delighted with the team’s performance but says he will never forget the moment when he realised he had scored.

“When Aaron passed me the ball I couldn't believe it. I just swung my left foot at it and fortunately it went in and I was like 'oh my gosh.',” he told Arsenal Player.

“I couldn't believe it, I was in shock. I didn't know what to do or how to celebrate but I enjoyed it! I have dreamt about it so many times but I never thought it could feel as good as this.

“My family, my friends, my close friends even my uncle was here today so I was glad to get a goal for them.”
