Arsenal And England Youngster Reiss Nelson Strikes Again For Loan Club Hoffenheim

Reiss Nelson is on absolute fire in the Bundesliga!
Reiss Nelson is on absolute fire in the Bundesliga!

Reiss Nelson just keeps on getting and better. Just two minutes after coming on as a substitute - less than ten minutes before half-time - in Hoffenheim’s match-up with Augsburg at the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena, the English youngster provided the winner in a 2-1 home win to continue his successful exploits in Germany.

This comes in a week in which the 18-year-old Nelson sent yet another firm statement out about his quality, again the difference for Die Kraichgauer, coming on in the Champions League match against Olympique Lyonnais just under the hour mark when Hoffenheim were 2-0 down.

They would eventually draw the game 2-2.

Nelson’s valuable contribution saw him have an 100% passing record (from 14 passes), made two key passes, a clearance, an interception and won half of his duels he encountered. Furthermore, he almost helped set up a winner - if Joelinton had managed to put the ball away.

Nelson has grabbed the opportunity offered in the Bundesliga by the scruff of the neck, with both hands, and is setting a shining example - alongside Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho - to fellow England youngsters how to further career prospects in foreign lands.

His most recent successes come amid reports that parent club Arsenal are considering recalling the youngster due to his success in Germany. Last week he became the third youngest player in history to score five Bundesliga goals.

Nelson managed just 734 minutes of game-time with Arsenal, with no goals or assists to his name. Since joining Hoffenheim on a loan deal this summer - in just over 400 minutes of action - Nelson has already contributed six goals and one assist, helping to rocket Hoffenheim up to fifth in the Bundesliga.

His contract with Arsenal currently expires in three seasons time, at the end of the 2021/2022 season.
