Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah has continued his superb form at the start of this season after bagging two goals for England’s Under 21s.
The 20-year-old scored the opening goal in the Euro Under 21 Championship qualifier against Turkey on Friday night and scored the equaliser before another Gunners star Reiss Nelson sealed a 3-2 victory.
Supporters on Twitter believe Nketiah has what it takes to make it a massive impact when he returns from his loan spell at Leeds:
Arsenal need to keep this one. He’s going to be a baller. The new @IanWright0

The boy's ridiculous, always looks like he's playing against defenders that can't mark.. can't be a coincidence

Real baller, he's always got his eyes on goals

Nketiah recently revealed that manager Unai Emery wanted him to stay at the Emirates this season as he was part of the club’s first-team plans but the player was keen for more first-team action.
The decision seems to be working out for him. He has made five appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far and has scored three goals. However, his only starts up until now have been in the Carabao Cup and he will want to break into the side for league games.
