Arteta Names Two Nigerian Descent In Arsenal Squad For Europa League Clash

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has named two of Nigerian descent, Folarin Balogun and Miguel Azeez, to the Arsenal squad for the Europa League clash with Molde on Thursday night at the Aker Stadion.

The north London team hopes to get back on the winning track after failing to win in their last consecutive games with a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa and a goalless draw with Leeds United.

Arsenal flew to Norway on Tuesday and was photographed at the airport boarding his plane to Scandinavia via the club’s Twitter account with Balogun, Azeez and other academy prospects Emile Smith Rowe and Ben Cottrell.
