Ashley Young finally scored his first goal of the season tonight and it was a superb strike. Hit from all of 30 yards, it arrowed in off the crossbar to put England 4-0 up against San Marino.
That was the first goal that Young has scored for club or country since May 2012 when he scored for England against Norway. That is a sign of how poor a season he has had.
Despite being marred by injuries, that is a terrible return. With the Premier League run in about to come into full swing, let’s hope that this goal tonight will give him the confidence he needs to kick on. He certainly needs it.
