Watch: Man Utd starlet Anthony Elanga scores yet again for Sweden U21s

Manchester United‘s Anthony Elanga has carried his excellent run of form into the international break with Sweden Under-21s.

After making his United debut against Leicester City, the winger then scored his first goal for the club during their 2-1 win over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.

He received his first call up into Sweden’s Under-21 squad and marked his debut with a wonderful strike in their 2-0 win over Finland.

The 19-year-old then made it three goals in his last three appearances for club and country, finding the back of the net with a brilliant header against Luxembourg.

Elanga could feature for United in their pre-season friendlies and has been linked with a loan move away from Old Trafford ahead of 2021-22.

“I just have to keep working hard in training,” Elanga recently told Fotbollskanalen. “How I train is how I play, so if I train very hard I will play very well. But right now my focus is on the Under-21 national team here. Then, when this get-together is over, I will sit down with the club and discuss what is best for me for next season.

“You must be ready if they want to send you out on loan or back to the Under-23 team. I can not say that I play for the A-team yet. You have to be ready all the time and give 150% in training. If I get my chance on the pitch, I have to take it. If I can score then it’s a bonus, if I can play well it’s even better.”
