Emile Smith Rowe became the first player born in the 21st century to score for us when he made it 2-0 away at Qarabag on Thursday night.
After the match, our midfielder was understandably delighted at scoring his first goal for the club.
Here’s what he said:
on his first Arsenal goal…
It feels good to have got my first goal today, and the three points as well. It’s just a dream come true really!
on if he feels as though he belongs…
Yeah, I feel at home in this team. I train with them every day and everyone’s so welcoming. I’m just happy to [be here].
on if he felt fired up…
It’s just all about belief. We’re a team that help each other and try to do our best for each other.
