WATCH: Arsenal teen James Olayinka thilled with super goal

Arsenal teen James Olayinka was thrilled to score in their friendly win over Colorado Rapids.

Olayinka, 18, struck in the 3-0 win.

He told arsenal.com: "I just picked the ball up on the edge of the area and when I looked up, I saw the keeper on the other side. I took a shot, made sure it was on target, and luckily it went in.

"I was actually on the floor when I kicked it, so when I looked up, it was just in time to see it hit the net. It's a great feeling. I'm just happy I got the goal really."

Olayinka added: "I've been here for 12 years now, so to finally score for the first team is a great feeling. I'm sure everyone at home is happy and hopefully there are many more to come."
