We have recently written on this site about the exciting young prospect called Jack Wilshere.
This was right after 1970’s Gooner got all excited having watched the 16 year old outclass West Ham’s (much older) reserves.
He had a hand in both goals scored. The first by cutting inside and sliding a ball on the floor right through the West ham defence for Rui Fonte to run onto and toe poke into the net via the near post.
But it was Wilshere’s goal that impressed everyone. He again picked the ball form the right hand side came infield and as the defenders backed off shot a delightful curler of a shot.
It evaded the goalkeeper’s desperately outstretched hand to glide in off the post and into the net!
No wonder Arsene Wenger had a very satisfying smile when he scored.
A lot of our readers (especially those living abroad) were asking to see this boy in action.
We have now managed to find the video of these two goals. You can watch them by clicking on the video bar which is on the right hand page.
