Ethan Nwaneri created history at the Premier League game on Sunday, where he became the youngest player ever to play in the League. Nwaneri is the new 15-year-old player representing Arsenal Club in the ongoing Premier League. Ethan is an English footballer playing primarily in the midfield.

Ethan was benched for a time before he played his first ever match in the Premier League on Sunday. He broke the record of Harvey Elliot from Liverpool, who was 16 years and 30 days old. Nwaneri was earlier supposed to play for the under-18 team. The 15-year-old displayed an impressive performance leading him to a promotion to under-21.

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard was injured, and so was Oleksandr Zincheko, the celebrated midfielders of the club. Mikel Arteta gave the opportunity to the young and budding Ethen for the spot. “We are pretty short, and opportunities come when issues arise. We have the opportunities to bring young players on.” Mikel Arteta stated 

A Northern Ireland schoolboy Christopher Atherton at the age of 13 years and 329 days, became the youngest senior football player in the United Kingdom. Christopher appeared for Glenavon earlier this week and played the game.
