Arsenal fans rave about ‘special’ youngster after last-second goal as Wilshere approaches feat not achieved in 14 years | The Sun
ARSENAL fans are raving about Myles Lewis-Skelly after his last-gasp goal to send the club's Under-18s into the FA Youth Cup final.
With just seconds remaining of the game against Manchester City, the midfielder burst into the box and headed home to spark mass celebrations.
Arsenal have not won the trophy for 14 years, when now youth-team manager Jack Wilshere was part of the side.
Back then, the squad featured the likes of Luke Ayling, Henri Lansbury, Francis Coquelin and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.
And Gunners fans are dreaming that they could have another special crop of youngsters from Hale End on their hands.
Lewis-Skelly has impressed throughout Arsenal's road to the final and he has been hailed yet again.

Another reacted: "My favourite youth Arsenal player I'm so happy for him.
A third added: "When I was watching the game he was by far the standout player."
Lewis-Skelly, 16, has even been singled out by Wilshere, saying: "He can do things you can’t coach."

Ethan Nwaneri is also in the squad after he came on in the senior team's Premier League win over Brentford earlier this season to become the youngest ever player to feature in the division, aged 15.
On the duo, Wilshere said: "Let’s remember Ethan and Myles are a bit younger and how they’re able to dominate, manage moments in a game and drive a team is impressive.”
Arsenal will find out their opponent for the final on Thursday night when West Ham welcome Southampton.
