Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which highlighted footage of centre-forward Sam Greenwood in action for England U19s.
Since joining Leeds from Arsenal in what was a £1.53 million deal last summer, Greenwood has been in remarkable form for the Whites’ U23 side, scoring eight goals across his 15 Premier League 2 appearances so far this season.
And it would appear as if the 19-year-old has continued his fine goalscoring form while on international duty, with @leeds_utd_news sharing footage of the striker scoring a fantastic goal for the England U19 side, in a rather unusual fixture against Arsenal U23s.
In reaction to the footage, fans of Leeds flocked to have their say on the matter, with many heaping a considerable amount of praise on Greenwood for his strike, while others suggested that the future looks very bright for Marcelo Bielsa’s side at present.
Do you think Greenwood is ready for first-team football?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to the footage of Sam Greenwood?
“The deals for both Greenwood and Gelhardt are looking more and more criminal by the day. If they continue developing at the rate they are, we’re going to be set for serious firepower for years to come.”
“Bielsa is coaching these boys…”
“Some boy that Greenwood.”
“The future looks bright…”
“Great movement and great goal. Just like Alfie’s for Oldham. We’ve got some fantastic young lads coming through. There’s going to be strong competition for places over the next couple of years by these young men and many others in our youth ranks. Bring it on.”
“The future is bright.”
All in all, it would appear as if these Leeds fans are delighted with how Greenwood is developing at their club, and are looking forward to the 19-year-old becoming involved in first-team football at Elland Road.
And considering the centre-forward’s record for the U23 side this season, as well as seeing the footage of his recent goal for England U19s, it would very much seem as if the young striker is not far away from being ready for senior-level football.
