Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after watching footage of Gabriel Martinelli in action for Brazil last night.

What happened?

Well, in a friendly clash ahead of the Olympic Games, Arsenal’s No.35 scored his first goal for his country.

Dani Alves executed an incredible no-look cross to the back post, where the ball was then headed across goal for Martinelli to tap in.

Admittedly, he was injured in the first half of last season. However, after his return, Arteta only gave Martinelli seven Premier League starts.

In our view, if Willian starts over Martinelli again in 2021/22, questions have to be asked.

For now, let’s see how the Arsenal fans on Twitter reacted to Martinelli’s goal…
