Arsenal played their first US tour game against Colorado Rapids and won with the 3-0 score.

After the win, Arsenal fans can’t stop praising their youngster Bukayo Saka, who opened the score of the game in the 13th minute.

The Gunners’ fans are amazed by the way the 17-year-old performed against Rapids and have compared him with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

“I don’t think I’m being dramatic by saying Bukayo Saka is the next Lionel Messi,” one wrote on Twitter.

“Bukayo Saka should play more this season,” the other one said.

Arsenal’s next pre-season game in the USA is against Bayern Munich on July 18.
