Arsenal whiz Eddie Nketiah: The post again?!

Eddie Nketiah was pleased with his role in Arsenal's friendly win over Western Sydney Wanderers.

The young striker hit the post in the 3-1 win.

He told arsenal.com: "I thought I did well when I came on [against Western Sydney Wanderers]," he told Arsenal Player. “I contributed to the team and brought something different.

“It's just unfortunate, it's the second time in two games that I have hit the post but it's nice to be in and around it, getting chances and hopefully next time it goes in.

“I have been happy with my performances here in Australia. I have been playing in positions I am not really used to and I think I have adapted well and brought something different to the game each time I have come on, and that's all I can do really.

“It is great experience, I am loving every second of it, taking everything in and trying to show the boss what I can do. Hopefully I can get on more trips like this and be more involved in the first team.

“Performing in front of 83,000 fans is probably [more intimidating than doing an initiation song] but then again I think I like it! I enjoy it, it is something different and hopefully it is the first of many."
