Although it was a miserable night for Wales as they lost 1-0 to Hungary in Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday, many Manchester United fans were thrilled with what they saw of incoming summer signing Daniel James. In the Championship, the 21-year-old was known for his electrifying pace and ability on the ball, and that is exactly what he showcased on Tuesday night in Budapest. Understandably, United supporters were taken aback by how fast James actually is. Something that is currently lacking from the United squad is someone who can get the ball up the pitch in a zip and launch some devastating counter-attacks, much like Ryan Giggs did back in his prime. It’s too soon to draw any solid comparisons between James and Giggs, but the Old Trafford-bound attacker is bound to light up the place next season when he is playing in the Premier League. Man United fans have every right to be pleased with his addition.

What I've liked about James from the little I've seen so far is not only is he quick, but he's quick with the ball. It's not 10 yards in front of him even at top speed which is very impressive. let's hope there's plenty more to come! #MUFC

Daniel James is a great first signing, young player, pacey & puts in 100% on the pitch. Hopefully we can sort out a few more signings before pre season starts in July. #mufc

No over analysis on James, just things I can see with my own ????
He's rapid, quicker than anything we have.
No defenders will want to be 1v1 with him they'll have to double up on him
He'll get plenty of players booked.
