Arsenal fans all saying the same thing as Brazilian wonderkid Marquinhos scores minutes into debut in Europa League
ARSENAL signing Marquinhos took just 16 minutes to score on his debut for the club.
The Gunners needed little more than a quarter of an hour to go in front against FC Zurich in their opening Europa League game of the season.
And it was a lovely counter-attacking move which opened the scoring.
Fabio Vieira began the swift transition from inside his own half, playing a long ball across the floor for Eddie Nketiah.
Nketiah then composed himself before sliding a low cross to Marquinhos via a little deflection.
And the Brazilian youngster made no mistake from close range as he coolly tucked away the finish.
He then celebrated by dropping to the floor in an emotional fashion as his team-mates revelled in the debut strike.
And Arsenal fans were buzzing to see summer signing Marquinhos hit the ground running so quickly.
Speaking about the 19-year-old, one supporter said: “Marquinhos giving me Martinelli vibes.”
While another added: “Wow, what a player. Marquinhos is a gem 💎.”
And a third said: “Arsenal’s Brazilian sensation Marquinhos is going to smash it in the Europa League 🔥.”
Marquinhos, who plays predominantly as a winger, scored four goals in 41 appearances for Sao Paulo before arriving in England.
He did not featured in any of Arsenal’s opening six Premier League games, with the Gunners winning their first five before losing to United at the weekend.
Next up for Mikel Arteta’s men is a home match against struggling Everton on Sunday.
