Posted by

In the 22nd minute of Manchester City’s clash with Burnley this evening, Phil Foden fired the Citizens into the lead with a wonderful hit.

After a clever short corner, Bernardo Silva laid the ball off to Foden, the 20-year-old took just one touch before drilling the ball into the bottom corner from 25 yards out.

This is about as clean a strike as you can get, the ball just hammered into the back of the net. Nick Pope had no chance of stopping this.

Take a look at the wonderkid’s exceptional strike below:

This is exactly why Foden deserves as much game time as possible, the technical ability that the attacking midfielder possesses is amazing.
