Manchester United’s U18s secured their first win of the season today against Everton with a convincing 5-1 scoreline, thanks in no small part to Angel Gomes’ hat-trick.
The 15-year-old came off the bench to net three goals in the same week he played for and captained England’s U17s, so what a few days it has been for Gomes.
United’s new signings Tahith Chong and Nishan Burkart also played their part in a fantastic performance, with Burkart himself scoring the equaliser, before Gomes turned the game on its head with his first goal.
In the second half, Gomes then scored a penalty before some excellent play by Chong allowed him to finish his hat-trick and seal an excellent win for United’s U18s. DJ Buffonge finished the scoring with our fifth goal.
United’s players were understandably delighted after the game which will hopefully kick-start their season.
