Watch: Manchester United youth prospect scores stunning solo goal


Anthony Elanga showed Manchester United fans they have an exciting prospect on their books with a stunning solo goal for the club’s Under-18s side against Newcastle United.

The Red Devils’ youngsters beat their Newcastle counterparts 3-1 on Saturday thanks to a brace from Charlie McCann and Elanga’s goal in first-half stoppage time.

Elanga, a Swedish-born forward, collected the ball out wide just over the halfway line and dribbled past a host of Magpies defenders to slot home.

The goal ensured Elliott Anderson’s second-half strike for Newcastle was only a mere consolation, and United fans will be sure to keep an eye out for Elanga’s name in the future.
