Aston Villa: Fans react to Douglas Luiz’s Brazil under-23’s goal

Douglas Luiz has certainly made an impact in his short spell at Aston Villa so far.

Is Dean Smith getting the most out of Aston Villa's squad?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 21-year-old joined the Villans from Manchester City in the summer and has so far played six times for his new club in the Premier League including three starts (via Transfermarkt).

During that time he has also managed to score two goals, with one coming against AFC Bournemouth whilst the most recent was in their 5-1 win against Norwich City.

It is fair to say that both goals were stunning strikes, with both coming from outside the area with some venom.

Indeed, he must be gaining a reputation amongst the Villa supporters that he only scores screamers, and that will only have increased after he scored yet another long-ranged effort for the Brazil under-23’s on Thursday.

The ball dropped to Luiz at the edge of the penalty area, and he hit it first time with his right foot and it rocketed past the goalkeeper.

A video of the goal was posted on Twitter, and several Villa fans were left impressed by yet another glorious strike. Meanwhile others turned it into something of a joke, claiming that he is incapable of scoring unless it is from outside the penalty area.

Here are some of the best replies…
