Edward Nketiah fires brace for Gunners
Arsenal gets a boost from Edward Nketiah's powerful performance on field
Washington: Youngster Edward Nketiah made it three goals in two matches with a brace that boosted Arsenal to a 3-0 win over Fiorentina in a pre-season friendly in North Carolina. Nketiah, 20, who fired the game-winner two minutes from time in a win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday, picked up right where he left off with goals in the 15th and 66th minutes. Joseph Willock added an exclamation point with a goal to make it 3-0 in the 89th.
Fiorentina could have made things more difficult for the Gunners but for a series of missed chances in the first half and solid work by Emi Martinez in the Arsenal goal.
