Many Aston Villa fans have been going wild on Twitter, following footage shared by The Villa Academy on the social media platform showing Tim Iroegbunam scoring a piledriver for Villa’s under-23s in a 4-2 defeat away to their Norwich City counterparts.
Making a controversial move across the Midlands from rivals West Bromwich Albion, the 19-year-old midfielder has previously been tipped to have a promising future ahead of him by the club’s academy manager Mark Harrison [avfc.co.uk].
Could Iroegbunam break into the AVFC first-team this season?
Last weekend, he managed to get on the scoresheet for the Aston Villa development squad in stellar fashion. After cutting inside, he then proceeded to lash a powerful shot into the top corner of the net from around 25 yards out.
Despite his best efforts, his side went on to lose 4-2, leaving them fourth in Premier League 2 Division Two [Soccerway].
After witnessing the footage on Twitter, it was little wonder that plenty of Aston Villa diehards took to Twitter to go wild over Iroegbunam’s wonder goal.
Aston Villa FC fans react:
Replying to The Villa Academy on Twitter, here is what some fans had to say about the goal from the “quality” starlet:
“He’s definitely channeled his inner Pogba with the hair and the goal…”
