Footage of Arsenal starlet Salah-Eddine Oulad M’Hand finding the net in spectacular fashion for the club’s U23s has begun to turn heads across social media.
Balogun amongst the goals
After the club’s senior outfit made short work of Aston Villa in the Premier League last Friday, the Gunners’ latest batch of up-and-coming young talent marked their return to action over the weekend, too.
Kevin Betsy’s U23 outfit welcomed Everton to Meadow Park, for a Premier League 2 clash.
The Gunners headed into proceedings eyeing a bounce-back result, after seeing a fine start to the campaign brought to a firm halt at the hands of Liverpool last time out.
And, when all was said and done in the English capital, bounce back is precisely what Arsenal managed.
A dominant, attack-minded display ultimately culminated in the hosts emerging on the right side of a 4-0 scoreline, owing to goals from all of Folarin Balogun, Salah-Eddine, Ryan Alebiosu and Zak Swanson.
As outlined above, though, amid the Gunners’ stellar all-round showing, it was the name of one player in particular which went on to steal the headline post-match.
The starlet in question? The aforementioned Salah.
18-year-old midfielder Salah has begun to make a new for himself as one of the most promising breakthrough talents on the red half of north London over the early months of the season, owing to a series of remarkable individual goals.
One such effort was forthcoming two weeks ago, when the Dutchman bent a stunning free-kick into the top-corner during a meeting with Newport County in the Papa John’s Trophy:
And, this past weekend, Salah was back at it once more.
After setting an Arsenal attack in motion through the middle of the park, the former Feyenoord youngster was slipped into the Everton area.
And, from here, Salah went on to showcase just some of the many traits which make him such a truly legitimate prospect, skipping beyond one, not two, but three Blues defenders, before slotting home in style.
Check out the goal in question below, and be sure to keep an eye out for Salah’s name moving forward…
