Manchester United fans react to James Wilson’s stunning debut

by Tracey Germaine

James Wilson‘s debut immediately saw his name placed alongside some esteemed company.

Like Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney, he scored two goals on his debut for the club (Rooney went on to score a third) but it is further back than that where the best comparison comes.

The last academy graduate to score two goals on his senior debut? Sir Bobby Charlton.

Understandably, Manchester United fans were bursting at the seams with excitement before kick-off because of the two debutants and that excitement reached fever pitch by full time.

Nothing betters watching an academy graduate flourish and looking ahead to next season, Wilson has surely earned his chance to prove himself in the first team.

The future’s bright, the future’s United.
