Martinelli has had an incredible start to his Arsenal career center_img 1 He recently said: “I have to thank God for this opportunity, the gaffer and the team gave me a big welcome and I’m trying to get opportunities and do the best I can with them.“I have to be patient since I’m young and the gaffer talked to me saying I should be patient and wait for the chances, because they will come.“I’m very happy, and I thank god a lot for this. I want to make my career here and try to be a legend.”In what will probably go down as the most exciting match of the season, the Reds edged it on penalties after the game ended 5-5 in normal time to make it through to the quarter-finals.Joe Willock thought he’d won it with a strike worthy of the occasion, but Divock Origi equalised in the last minute of stoppage time to send the game to penalties.And the hosts won the shootout 5-4 as Caoimhín Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos’ spot-kick, allowing 18-year-old Curtis Jones to win it.last_img
