Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira scores directly from a corner

Andreas Pereira

Manchester United’s young Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira scored a wonderful goal on Monday night against Tottenham. 

The 20-year-old opened the scoring for the U21s against Spurs, where The Red Devils’ junior team went on to win the game 3-1. 

Pereira has made three Premier League substitute appearances for Louis van Gaal this season, and has featured in one Champions League match as well – this performance may encourage Van Gaal to give him more game time for the senior team in the coming matches. 

The Brazilian is a mighty talented player who excelled at the 2015 U20 World Cup – check the goal below. Really, a brilliant effort from the Brazilian youngster!
