Eddie Nketiah rose off the bench to great effect as Arsenal clinched a narrow 2-1 win over Norwich City in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.

The 18-year-old, who was not even born when Arsene Wenger took aver as head coach at the Gunners, bagged a brace for the North London club as they sealed their place in the next round.

Nketiah scored with his first touch in the 85th minute to pull the sides level at the Emirates, before netting the winner in extra-time from a Mohamed Elneny corner-kick.

Born in England, Nketiah is also eligible to play for Ghana at international level.

The forward has already represented the Three Lions at youth level, netting seven goals in four appearances.
