Another said: “You were simply superb yesterday ”

Smith Rowe came through the Arsenal youth system having joined the academy as a ten-year-old.

He was part of the England Under-17s World Cup winning squad in India last year.

Smith Rowe impressed in pre-season and earned himself a new five-year-contract in July.

The teen said: “To be honest it feels great for me.

“It’s something I’ve always dreamt of since I was young, so to sign a new contract with Arsenal… I’m just so happy and it feels surreal at the moment.”
