Horrible Arsenal debut for Arthur Okonkwo in Hibernian defeat


Young Arsenal goalkeeper, Arthur Okonkwo had a senior debut to forget in the club’s defeat to Hibernian in Mikel Arteta’s first pre-season game ahead of the new season.

Okonkwo committed an embarrassing blunder leading to Hibernian’s first goal against Arsenal.


The 19-year-old failed to deal with a back pass, as he completely missed his kick, allowing Martin Boyle to tap into an empty net.


Hibernian finished the half with a 1-0 lead and would eventually go on to win 2-1.


Arteta made seven changes before the restart, Okonkwo among those dropped to the bench by the Spaniard.


The former England U18 signed a long-term contract last week, and could be part of Mikel Arteta’s plans for the new campaign.
