Arsenal Youngster Matthew Smith Had A Hilarious Reaction To Taking FA Cup Winners' Medal

Arsenal youngster Matthew Smith's reaction to collecting a FA Cup winners medal has had fans in stitches on social media.

The 19-year old has yet to play for the Gunners' first-team but was on the bench for the 2-1 win over Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final.

It meant that he was eligible for a medal but if you watch the video of him grabbing his memento - nobody was on hand to dish them out because of social distancing amidst COVID-19 - it genuinely looks as though Smith was stealing it.

The little sheepish look away as he takes the medal is absolutely priceless, almost as if he's nicking some sweets from the shop.

Although he didn't get on the pitch, Smith was very much part of the celebrations and the young Essex-born midfielder will have no doubt have enjoyed his first trophy in professional football.

Shortly after his comical medal pick-up, Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had an absolute nightmare in lifting his first trophy of his career.

The Gabon striker scored the two goals that won the final for Mikel Arteta's side but he seriously struggled with the trophy lift - even dropping the iconic piece of silverware on the Wembley turf.

It prompted manager Arteta to a give a brilliant explanation for why he couldn't quite manage to perfect the trophy lift.
