It’s always pleasing to see a hard working striker who creates their own chances before taking them, so this is a nice piece of play from Eddie Nketiah.
He’s not content at letting Dundalk clear the ball up the field so he does well to block the clearance, while the lobbed finish is just enough to beat the defender who’s rushing back to clear:

It’s a fairly pointless game for both teams with the group already decided, but Arsenal’s strikers are out of form just now so this should give Nketiah a confidence boost.
