Manchester United fans will be delighted to see that new youth recruit Joe Hugill has bagged a brace on his debut for the club’s Under-18s side.
The 16-year-old arrived from Sunderland this summer and has wasted no time in showcasing his excellent finishing ability.
Hugill bagged his first in superb fashion in the 28th minute after a teammate won the ball back in the final third, the left-footed striker took a touch before firing the ball into the top corner.
The talent’s second came in the 73rd minute after the Red Devils carved open their opponents with a well-worked counter-attacking move.
The ball was slipped into Hugill’s path and the starlet somehow managed to smash the ball into the top corner at the near post, despite being at a very tight angle.
Take a look at the promising forward’s brace below:
