Why did Nketiah pass on becoming a legend alongside Henry & Arshavin?


We’ll have to invetigate that question further after Nketiah got his first-ever hat-trick but passed on a chance at scoring a fourth, giving Vieira a chance at scoring from the spot after the Portugeuse man was fouled just inside the area. It was a glorious day for Nketiah, who, in addition to scoring three well-taken goals, accepted the captain’s armband when Saka was subbed off. There’s a real team spirit here, with players looking to support each other, and that’s what we saw here. Nketiah could have gotten greedy, but to see him give Vieira the chance after having accepted that armband says a lot about the spirit in this squad. Enough blathering. Let’s get to the poll to rate the lads!

    Not to forget the much maligned Julio ( La Bestia) Baptista’s four against Liverpool in the League Cup 2007.😂
    Great performance by Eddie which will do his confidence the world of good.

      How could I overlook Baptista? SIlly me! Let’s hope that this is the kind of performance that kicks Nketiah’s career to the next level. Each goal was well-taken, no lucky poaching to be seen today.
