Gedion Zelalem scores brilliant solo goal for Arsenal U-19s

Gedion Zelalem 1, Galatasaray 0.

His name is Gedion Zelalem. He plays for Arsenal. And he is the destroyer of anyone he plays, in this case Galatasaray.

But you already knew that. Most every American soccer fan knows his name because they desperately want him to play for the U.S. Born in Germany, Zelalem moved to the U.S. as a kid, but doesn't have American citizenship. Yet. He reportedly is very close to getting it, thus enabling him to play for the U.S.

And the U.S. wants him. Why wouldn't you want a kid who is dribbling through other teams and starring for Arsenal? Sure, it's the U-19s, but it's no joke. Arsenal have one of the better youth teams in England and Zelalem is legitimate star on it.

Watch that video again.

And again.

And again.

Now try to say, with a straight face, that you don't want to see Zelalem in red, white and blue. Goddamn that video, he's so good.
