English-born of Ghanaian descent Eddie Nketiah scored in Arsenal win over Southampton in the English Premier League on Thursday evening.
Arsenal inflicted a 2-0 home defeat on Southampton in their match-week 31 clash at the St. Mary's Stadium.
The 21-year-old fired the opener for the Gunners on the 20th minute of the game.
After an even start, there appeared to be no danger for the hosts as Jan Bednarek rolled a pass back to goalkeeper McCarthy – but Nketiah showed the type of desire called for by his manager by chasing it down.
His tenacity paid dividends as McCarthy hit his clearance straight at the striker, who was left to roll the ball into an empty net.
On the 86th minute, Joseph Willock sealed their away win over Southampton with a superb finish to return to winning ways.
He was replaced by Alexandre Lacazette on the 79th minute of the game.
Nketiah has netted two goals in his eight league appearances for Arsenal this season so far.
