Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to footage regarding youngster Carney Chukwuemeka on social media.
Chukwuemeka, who was attracting interest from Bayern Munich and Juventus just last month, scored on his debut for England’s Under-18 side in a friendly against Wales on Monday.
The 17-year-old picked the ball up from just over the halfway line and exchanged a give-and-go with a teammate before calmly slotting past the goalkeeper.
Fellow Villa youngsters Louie Barry and Aaron Ramsey also featured against Wales for the Three Lions.
Chukwuemeka signed professional terms at Villa Park last October and was included in Dean Smith’s matchday squad for the first time against Leicester City last month.
The midfielder has made 16 appearances for the club’s youth side this season, scoring once and registering three assists.
Will Grealish stay at Villa this summer?
