Bukayo Saka’s second senior start for Arsenal saw the 18 year old score his first goal for the club, as well as being credited with two assists.
He was involved in the move which saw Joe Willock score the Gunners opener, and perfectly fed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the third goal right at the death.
It was his goal which caught the eye most though, curling in a perfect shot to beat the vastly experienced Kevin Trapp in the Frankfurt goal, and the Academy graduate was rightly delighted with his contribution.
“It’s a very proud moment and I’m just so happy,” he said afterwards.
“It’s a dream come true, since I was as a kid I’ve always dreamed of scoring for Arsenal’s first team, so now I’ve done that and I just want to do it more and get that feeling many more times.”
In a packed, and often hostile Commerzbank-Arena, Saka was not troubled at all by the atmosphere, continuing, “We spoke about it before the game. Their fans get behind them a lot and the fans on that end were just making noise the whole way, the whole game long.
“That’s big support for them, but we said that we just have to play with our confidence, play our game, stick to our game plan and everything will be fine.
“We don’t have to let it affect us.”
