Marquinhos has scored just 15 minutes into his Arsenal debut against FC Zurich in the Europa League this evening.
The Brazilian joined this summer in a bargain move from Serie A side Sao Paulo, and was initially placed in the youth sides, but has been called up to make his first senior outing today and he has made an immediate impact.
Marquinhos has made the perfect run into the box for Eddie Nketiah to lay him in behind the defence, and he made no mistake in putting the effort away.

It’s a great breakaway move from our young contingent, and I couldn’t be happier for Marquinhos who appears to be thriving after his move, and it could well be pressure on Fabio Vieira to make a similar impact on his full debut.
