Arsenal’s fans will love how Emile Smith Rowe paid tribute to Gunners during England debut


A photo of Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has piqued attentions amongst the club’s fanbase this evening, on the back of his senior international bow.

Kane rampant

England of course marked their return to action a short time ago.

In the penultimate fixture of their World Cup qualifying campaign, the Three Lions welcomed Albania to Wembley, desperate for all three points in their bid to keep 2nd-placed Poland at bay in the Group I table.

Harry Kane proved the star of the show, returning to form in a major way by means of his latest hat-trick, with Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson having been on target, too:

Late in the action at Wembley, with the result of course long secured, ESR was introduced off the bench in place of Raheem Sterling:

And Arsenal’s starring academy graduate was evidently keen not to overlook his roots in taking to the pitch, with photos of Smith Rowe to have made their way online showcasing the fact that the 21-year-old donned Gunners-themed shin pads on his international bow:
