Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes scored a sensational late winner as Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Thursday in a pre-season friendly.

After a swift one-two with Juan Mata, the 18 year old rolled the ball into the corner of the net from a tight angle.

Reacting to scoring his first Manchester United goal, Gomes posted a picture of himself celebrating his goal against Tottenham with the caption: “Proud feeling to get my first goal! Great tour for all the lads now we keep pushing”

Speaking after the final whistle, Gomes added: “I can’t describe it, I’ve seen it back now, I went and celebrated with the fans. Hopefully the first of many.

“I got a bit of stick, a few academy players have scored (Garner vs Perth and Greenwood vs Leeds and Inter) and I hadn’t so it was good to score in the last game.

“It shows what the club is trying to do, we’re trying to bring youth players through, the stats are amazing, we’re proud of that.

“We’ve had a great tour, the team has gelled well, we can’t wait for the season to get started.”
