It didn’t take Memphis Depay very long to showcase his talents to Manchester United fans who tuned in to the Netherlands game against USA.
Straight from the first whistle, Depay’s direct style of play was clear to see. Donning gold boots, the 21-year-old ran at defenders and was giving them all sorts of problems until he eventually created the opening goal of the night.
Depay had sent in more than one excellent cross in the first half but no team-mate got on the end of one.
Thankfully, Klaas Jan Huntelaar was at the back post to head in this cross which was an absolute beauty.
It didn’t take long for Memphis to trend in Manchester…
You get the feeling that’s not the last time Depay will be trending in Manchester in 2015!
Given that Depay would have been well aware about everyone watching and expecting, he certainly seemed to thrive on the expectation.
