Nick Powell is currently away training with England’s U21s and judging by this screamer he scored in training, rehabilitation following surgery at the end of last season has gone very well.
It’s been quite a busy week for Powell. The 19-year-old secured a deadline day loan move to Championship side Wigan where he will spend the season and he has been away with Gareth Southgate’s England U21s as they began their Euro 2015 qualifiers.
Although Powell didn’t make the bench in England’s 1-0 victory over Moldova in midweek, it’s great to see him back in full training scoring screamers like this. Last year, Powell was extremely impressive whenever given the opportunity to play with the first team and when he played with the U21s, he was a class above the players around him.
His loan spell at Wigan should be a great move for his career. If he can get a full seasons worth of first team football, there is no reason why Powell cannot return to Old Trafford for the 2014/15 season and push for a spot in David Moyes’ first team.
