Arsenal midfielder Nelson (again!) scores in Hoffenheim win

Arsenal midfielder Reiss Nelson was again on the scoresheet for Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Against Augsburg, just seven minutes remained when the 18-year-old popped up to fire Hoffenheim to a 2-1 victory in the Bundesliga.

That was on-loan Arsenal teenager's sixth goal in just 319 minutes of action for the German outfit.

That makes it six in seven top-flight appearances for the in-form hitman, who penned a new long-term Gunners deal in the summer before departing for Hoffenheim for the season.

Nelson's form led to some speculating he would be included in Gareth Southgate's England squad this week for the upcoming clashes against USA and Croatia.
