Daniel Karbassiyoon, a 19-year-old Virginia product, scored Arsenal's winning goal in a 2-1 victory Wednesday over Manchester City in the third round of the English Carling League Cup.

Karbassiyoon, making his official competition debut, scored on a sharp drive in the 90th minute. Since signing with Arsenal in the summer of 2003, Karbassiyoon has played for the reserve team at forward and left back.

A product of Roanoke Star, Karbassiyoon was discovered by Arsenal scouts at the Adidas Elite Soccer Program (ESP). Injured Claudio Reyna did not see action for Manchester City, for which Robbie Fowler scored the consolation goal.
