Arsenal’s Kelechi Nwakali continues to impress on loan in the Netherlands and was named Man of the Match after his side’s 0-0 draw on Sunday with FC Eindhoven.
The 18-year-old started what was MVV’s third home draw in a row and was instrumental in their first real chance after 70 minutes. He then followed this up with a shot that was blocked, sending it wide.
Arsenal legend, Kanu, was watching the game from the stands and after the game, posted this tweet:
With the man of the match MVV vs Eindhoven and still the best. Good to support the young ones⚽️⚽️🙏🙏👍👍 pic.twitter.com/diwaeXaip2

Work permit permitting, the teenager could well be with the Arsenal squad next season.
