VIDEO: United academy star Pereira scores stunning free-kick for Belgium U17s

by Sam Peoples


On international duty with the Belgian U17 squad yesterday, Andreas Pereira curled this magnificent free-kick in off the post to equalise for Belgium. Pereira joined Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven in 2012 and it wasn’t long before he signed professional terms with Manchester United at the start of 2013 aged just 17, and the Belgian born youngster has shown he is quite the specialist at free-kicks.

In Manchester United’s most recent U18s fixture against Crystal Palace, he saw his free-kick come crashing back off the crossbar before Sam Byrne gobbled up the rebound to score and it isn’t the first time that Andreas Pereira has seen one of his cracking free-kicks go in. Late last year in an academy friendly against Loughborough University, Pereira curled this lovely effort in.
