The Mexican was on hand to open the scoring for the Gunners two minutes into the game when teammate Alex Kirk sent a headed pass to Flores inside the box after Bournemouth failed to clear Omari Hutchinson's initial free-kick.

From Kirk's pass, Marcelo had no trouble finding the bottom corner of the opposition's goal with a precise left-footed finish to open the game's scoring.

The fourth goal of the match was also the result of a great team play in which the Mexican was in charge of defining with a powerful shot at the end of the match. 

The young Arsenal U23 star capped off another well-crafted team move, with the 16-year-old Cozier-Duberry taking center stage.

In this way, Marcelo Flores shows that he can respond to the opportunities offered to him by one of Europe's giants with concrete results. 

The team's next game in Premier League 2 will be on Friday, January 21 against Derby County U23s. 

With the result obtained in this match, Flores' team closes the gap with West Bromwich to two points in Group A of the Premier League Cup after five games.

The Mexican is on the right track in his development intending to reach Arsenal's first team, since just a few days ago he also scored a great goal against Chelsea U21, which helped his team to win the match. 

The 18-year-old has surprised everyone because, despite his age, he is competing with older players and is showing signs that if he continues to be given the confidence, he could aspire to make Mikel Arteta's roster. 

The youngster born in Canada but the son of a Mexican father has so far scored 6 goals and provided two assists for the U18 team, which makes him not only a good prospect for any club. 

Will Marcelo Flores continue to play for the Mexican national team?

This is undoubtedly the question most Tri fans have been asking themselves since the midfielder finally made his debut with the Mexican team just last December. 

Although he only played a few minutes in the match, the player was excited and at the end of the game, he decided to dedicate a message of affection to all the followers of the Mexican national soccer team.

In his message, the player assured that he was very grateful to the Mexican team for the opportunity to make his debut and said: "See you soon", so the Mexican public dreams that the player will decide to make his career with the Mexican national team and not with the Canadian team. 

But while he makes his decision, it will be essential to follow him closely and see how he develops in European soccer
