(Video) Belgian Brazilian scores direct from corner as Man United U21s smash Spurs

Take a bow, Andreas Pereira!

Manchester United’s Belgian-born Brazil youth international scored direct from a corner kick as the Red Devils beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 in the Barclays U21 Premier League on Monday night.

Was he shooting, or just lucky? Either way, Spurs goalkeeper Tom Glover had a mare!

Pereira’s corner doubled United’s lead, which had been established by James Weir’s second goal in two games.

Joe Pritchard pulled one back for Spurs, but Pereira scored again late on – this time by dribbling around Glover and passing into an empty net – to complete the scoring.

He didn’t just pass into the net though, did he? The confident little so-and-so cheekily looked away from the ball and the goal as he stroked home from close range!
