Crystal Palace: Fans love Christian Benteke goal for the U23’s side

Crystal Palace: Fans love Christian Benteke goal for the U23’s side - Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace had a few noticeable names in their U23 side which faced Wolves on Monday. Christian Benteke was one of them, and a lot of the fan base are raving over a great goal that he scored in the fixture.

The Belgian capped off a beautiful counter attack with a curling strike from outside the box, and this is exactly what the player needed to give him some much-needed confidence.

The 29 year-old scored 17 goals in his first season for the Eagles (Transfermarkt), but has struggled ever since and only managed six goals in the following three campaigns.

He has received a lot of praise when playing to his full potential, notably from former Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert, who said: “Benteke has been colossal for us, he’s been unplayable in certain games.”

With Wilfried Zaha’s great form and the arrival on Michy Batshuayi on loan, Benteke has not had a lot of chances to impress this season, so performances like the one in the U23 game are vital if he wants to prove he can have a future at the club.

Here is how Crystal Palace fans have reacted to Benteke’s goal:
