Joe Rothwell scores fantastic brace for Man Utd U21s

by Sam Peoples

Joe Rothwell turned on the style with Manchester United’s U21s last night with a wonderful brace of goals which helped secure an emphatic 5-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers.

His first effort was an excellent finish which crashed in off the underside of the crossbar:

Rothwell’s second was the pick of the bunch on the night as the 19-year-old curled in a beautiful effort after a wonderful team passing move which ended with Ben Pearson laying the ball to Rothwell with a delicate backheel. Barcelona eat your heart out:

Josh Harrop breaking through into the U21s and injuries have hampered Rothwell this season so far but with performances like that, Warren Joyce will surely have to play from the start more often and you can bet your bottom dollar Louis van Gaal be told about Rothwell’s performance.
