Ethan Nwaneri overlooked for Arsenal's Goal of the Month award for March 2024

Posted : 08 April 2024

Ethan Nwaneri, a Nigerian-descendant England U17 international, has been overlooked for Arsenal's Goal of the Month award for March 2024.

According to the Gunners' official website, Stina Blackstenius, the Sweden international, clinched March's Emirates Goal of the Month, adding to her previous women's Player of the Month accolade.

Nwaneri was in contention for the Goal of the Month recognition due to his remarkable strike for Arsenal's development side against Chelsea in a Premier League 2 fixture at Kingsmeadow on March 1.

In the 64th minute of the game, Nwaneri displayed exceptional footwork, dribbling past three defenders before slotting the ball into the bottom right corner, increasing Mehmet Ali's side's lead to two goals.

Blackstenius' match-winning goal against Chelsea in the Conti Cup final secured 40% of the vote from Arsenal supporters, making it the best goal across all the club's teams, including the first team, women's side, and academy.

Other contenders for the Goal of the Month included James Sweet, Frida Maanum, Ben White, Kai Havertz, Leandro Trossard, Theo Julienne, and Lotte Wubben-Moy.

Despite being highly regarded as the standout player in the Arsenal academy, Nwaneri has previously been nominated for Arsenal's Goal of the Month in November and December 2022, February, April, August, September, and December 2023 but has yet to win the award.

Nwaneri, a product of the Hale End Academy, recently signed his first professional contract with Arsenal last month, committing to the north London club until at least the end of the 2025-2026 season.
