Emile Smith Rowe grateful for the chance to play for Arsenal

by Koolkola

It was a night of quick emotions for substitute Emile Smith Rowe. The young midfielder had a red card overturned by VAR before getting the first goal in extra time as we beat Newcastle 2-0 at the Emirates to secure a place in the FA Cup 4th round.

After the game, the young midfielder spoke to BBC Sport and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to help the club.

On a roller coaster evening for him…

I was really happy [to score] it was a bit of a relief for me obviously after the incident before which wasn’t ideal. It wasn’t intentional. I’m happy to get the goal and happy to go through to the next round.

On Newcastle being difficult opponents…

They were very difficult. We knew coming into the game how tough it was going to be. We know they are a strong opponent, so yeah, it was just about breaking them down. We got there and I’m happy with the win.

On being part of Arsenal’s revival…

It’s great, from a young kid I’ve always wanted to play for this club. All the young players, it’s good for us to get opportunities so I’m really happy to be playing for this club.

On grinding out a win…

It just shows how together we are, we’ve been working off the pitch to get closer as a group. It’s starting to show on the pitch and as a group, we’re so happy to win games, we’ve just got to keep it going.
