Northern Ireland fans react to performance of Arsenal talent Daniel Ballard

Northern Ireland went 10 games without a win after drawing 1-1 with Romania at Windsor Park but Arsenal starlet Daniel Ballard did produce another standout performance.

The youngster is on loan at Blackpool at the moment where he will hope to wow Mikel Arteta and force his way into the Arsenal team.

After shining in Ian Barraclough’s team against Austria at the weekend he was handed another cap against Romania.

He couldn’t help his country claim that elusive victory but he did earn himself some rave reviews from the nation’s supporters.

Ballard has risen through the academy ranks at Arsenal and is now cutting his teeth in League One.

The 21-year-old man-mountain has made five appearances for the Tangerines, operating in his typical central defensive role.

Ballard hasn’t look out of place on the international stage. He is uncompromising, strong in possession and isn’t afraid to put his body on the line.

Whether he earns himself an opportunity at Arsenal remains to be seen but he does seem to be on the right track.

Following last night’s game supporters took to Twitter to rave about the progress of the emerging star.

Here is what they were saying about the Gunners youngster.
