Prior to Everton, two young people of Nigerian descent were promoted to the Arsenal first team.

Before Arsenal’s Premier League match against Everton, manager Mikel Arteta promoted two young players of Nigerian descent, 2023 Flying Eagles invitee Ovie Ejeheri and midfielder Miguel Azeez, to first team training.

This month, 16 Arsenal players were called up for international duty, so the Spanish football tactician added some outstanding academy players to make up the numbers.

Following a protracted injury layoff that caused him to miss the last 28 competitive games played by the Gunners, African star Mohamed Elneny, who was rubbing shoulders with Ejeheri and Azeez, is close to recovering.

The two Anglo-Nigerian players have been left off of Arsenal’s 25-man Premier League roster, but they are still qualified to compete because they are considered U21 players due to their birthdates, which are after January 1, 2002.

Since joining Arsenal, Ejeheri hasn’t played for the first team, but he was selected as the 21st or extra player for a Premier League match against Watford in November 2021.

Ejeheri is fourth on the list of goalkeepers at the Emirates Stadium, behind Aaron Ramsdale, David Raya, and Karl Hein, despite being the development squad’s first choice after starting all four of their games in Premier League 2 this season.

Azeez has been a member of the matchday squad for Arsenal on ten occasions.

He has only played for the first team once, against Dundalk in the Europa League in December 2020.

Prior to the Everton match, Mikel Arteta receives “enormous” Arsenal injury support.

Ahead of Everton match, Mikel Arteta receives “enormous” Arsenal injury boost.

After the break for international play, Arsenal will travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in the Premier League on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

The Gunners have received an “enormous” boost ahead of the game as center-back Gabriel Magalhaes appears healthy enough to play despite injury concerns.

During Brazil’s opening match against Bolivia, Gabriel narrowly avoided an injury scare when, in his first international match, striker Diego Ibanez of Bolivia tackled him horribly.

In an attempt to win the ball, Gabriel was struck in the chest by Ibanez’s right knee. He continued the match and remained on the field for an additional 80 minutes before being removed.

Football London claims that he was seen wearing an ice pack on his thigh, which naturally raised questions about his physical condition.

A scan report indicated that the defender was uninjured, and he recovered quickly.

Brazil defeated Peru 1-0 thanks to a clean sheet from Gabriel and Marquinhos, a defender from Paris Saint-Germain.

The problem with international breaks is that players frequently get hurt, which makes the club manager even more frustrated. Gabriel appears to be in shape to play this weekend in this instance.

Gabriel was in the middle of a transfer whirlwind toward the end of the summer transfer window, but he stayed.

Thomas Partey, who is currently representing Ghana internationally, has sustained a groin injury.

Although the severity of the injury is not yet known, there is a chance that he could play again as soon as this weekend.
