English-born Ghanaian kid attacker Edward Nketiah registered a brace for Arsenal U17 as they hammered their AC Milan counterparts in the AlKass Cup match in Qatar on Sunday. 

Nketiah’s double ensured Arsenal win the bronze challenge with French giants Paris Saint-Germain taking on Brazilian side Sao Paolo in the final.

The 15-year-old took just 20 minutes to open the scoring for the Young Gunners before wrapping up the win for Arsenal with a clinical finish in the 86th minute.

Despite being in the U17 squad, Nketiah is in the Arsenal U19 side but was drafted into the U17 team for the tournament.

Nketiah is the newest Ghanaian youngster to come through the Arsenal youth system after Zak Ansah, Daniel Boateng and goalkeeper Oteng.
