Video: See why Arsenal youngster Jack Jebb has been described as the 'new David Beckham'
The 18-year-old midfielder has a reputation as a set-piece specialist
Thursday 13 March 2014
Have Arsenal unearthed the next David Beckham?
Here is the Gunners' youngster, Jack Jebb, bending in a glorious free-kick just like the former England captain during the 3-1 FA Youth Cup quarter-final victory over Everton this week at the Emirates Stadium.
The 18-year-old is gaining a reputation as something of a set-piece expert, and also netted a coolly-taken penalty in the match in the 34th minute to open the scoring. Again, like Becks, Jebb also whips in the corners for the Arsenal youth team as well.
Arsenal's official website compares him to another Jack at the club, Wilshere, and describes Jebb as a "technically-gifted central midfielder".
He has also played for England at Under-16 and Under-17 levels.
Jebb made the headlines for the wrong reasons last year, when he was banned for four matches and fined £1,800 for using racist language.
