Arsenal made a winning start to the Durban Under-19 International Tournament as they beat Celtic 4-2 in South Africa on Wednesday.
Gedion Zelalem produced a fine performance, setting up the opening goal for Tyrell Robinson before Ben Sheaf added a second for the Gunners.
Celtic fought back to make it 2-2 just before the hour mark, before Zelalem’s penalty and a Kaylen Hinds strike secured the victory.
Arsenal’s next game is on Friday, when they take on a KZN Academy XI.
