Bukayo says scoring his first-ever senor goal was a 'dream come true'. 

The 18-year old had a fantastic game on Thursday night, where his goal and two assists charged Arsenal to a 3-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.

Saka - who was making just his fifth senior Arsenal appearance - was thrilled with his performance and will work hard to earn more opportunities.

"I'm so happy to score for Arsenal, it's a dream come true - I have been dreaming of this moment since I was a kid," he told BT Sport.

"I just want to keep working hard to make sure I can feel this feeling again."

Saka was born in London to Nigerian parents. He is eligible to play for England and Nigeria, and has already featured for England at U-16, U-17, U-18 and U-19 level.
