Manchester United Football Club have unearthed an absolute gem in Daniel James. That much is obvious.
The 21-year-old, signed from Swansea City over the summer, has made a stunning start to life at Old Trafford. In four games he has scored three goals – all have been sublime finishes on his dangerous right-foot.
Well today, he has been at it again – this time for Wales during an international friendly against Belarus to give his side the lead.
This sort of finish is becoming a bit of a trademark, eh? James’ rapid pace and deadly accuracy from that angle is just unbelievable.
I cannot understate just how good this is, and if it was an Eden Hazard or Lionel Messi doing this, we’d never stop hearing about it.
For just £15million, James is already proving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer right to make the move for the 21-year-old. Who’d have thought it, eh? When United stick to their mantra of signing young players and developing their talents, they reap the rewards instantly…
It just makes it even more shocking when United tried to get away from what they know best, but that’s something that Solskjaer deserves credit for as his mantra is clear.
