Many West Brom fans have been buzzing as footage emerged involving Sam Johnstone.
As shared by the Baggies’ official Twitter channel, the goalkeeper launched a giant throw into the other half of the pitch to Jack Grealish while on international duty with England, before the Manchester City star finished off beautifully to put the Three Lions 5-0 up away at Andorra in their World Cup qualifier on Saturday night.
Will Johnstone leave West Brom?
It thus gave Johnstone an assist to his name, which of course is a rare feat for a goalkeeper, and it would certainly have caught the eye of Gareth Southgate going into England’s next match at home to Hungary on Tuesday night.
Several Albion supporters flocked to the club’s footage to sing their praises for the 28-year-old.
