‘Heading to the top’ – Arsenal fans in awe as Gabriel Martinelli scores screamer in Brazil training after f… – The Sun

GABRIEL MARTINELLI has wowed Arsenal fans by scoring a screamer with Brazil after earning his first international call-up.
The 20-year-old hitman was called up to the Brazil squad for their World Cup Qualifiers against Chile and Bolivia.
The Gunners star earned his first cap during Brazil's 4-0 romp against Chile where he came on as a substitute.
And Martinelli staked his claim for a starting spot in the Canarinho's next game against Bolivia by scoring TWO absolute belters in training.
For the first attempt, Martinelli only needed one touch when latching on to a pass to curl the ball into the top corner.
He then produced a piece of sublime skill by flicking the ball over an incoming slide tackle from a defender and attempted to hit the net again but his magical effort pinged off the crossbar.
However, Martinelli wasn't done there as he sped past his opponent to rumble the net once more.
And Arsenal fans took to social media to laud the 20-year-old for his impressive efforts.
One fan beamed: "This guy is heading to the very top."
While another gushed: "The second clip was pure filth 🔥 ashame it didn’t go in."
A third fan even compared Martinelli to Manchester United's Marcus Rashford.
After watching Martinelli in action, Brazil fans will be thanking their lucky stars that he chose to play for them instead of Italy.
The forward also had the option to play for the Azzurri as his father is Italian.
But Martinelli previously revealed that playing for Brazil was always in his heart.
And after Italy were shockingly dumped out of the World Cup in their play-off against North Macedonia, Martinelli will be reassured that he made the right decision.
