Video: Angel Gomes scores brilliant goal vs Brazil U16s

by Sam Peoples

Angel Gomes scored a wonderful goal for England’s U16s against Brazil to re-affirm his status as one of the most exciting youngsters we’ve got at Manchester United.

The 15-year-old turned on the edge of the box and curled in a peach of an effort off the post with a sublime finish. England might have lost 3-1 but Gomes’ goal certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Here’s a video of Gomes’ goal from his Instagram page:

A cracking goal isn’t a once-in-a-lifetime event for Gomes. Only a few weeks ago, he scored this for United’s U18s:

Timothy Fosu-Mensah was the player who I was most excited to see come through into the first-team and now he’s made that breakthrough, Gomes is one name I’m keeping my eye out for.

He’s only 15 but has played above his age group throughout his career so often that he’s developed ahead of his peers. Alongside Calum Gribbin, Gomes is an exciting young player who you should watch.
