Does Antony’s first professional goal look familiar?

Wednesday 22 March 2023 16:45

Antony has enjoyed a successful first campaign at Manchester United so far, following his summer move to the club from Ajax.

The Brazilian has progressed, adapting to the pace and demands of English football. As expected, he has also produced some moments of magic.

On Tuesday, with the winger set to join up with the Brazil squad ahead of their upcoming friendly against Morocco, our no.21 posted a video on Twitter of his very first professional goal.

Watch the clip below - it is certainly a shot we have seen him perform before…

Antony has scored a carbon-copy of this goal on several occasions for the Reds already, causing it to become something of a trademark for him.

Whether it be the winner in our Europa League play-off second leg against Barcelona, or more recently the second goal in the last-16 first leg versus Real Betis, the winger is deadly on that left foot.

The defenders know where he is going and what he is going to try to do, but they simply cannot stop him.

United have a history of mercurial wingers; whether that be Cristiano Ronaldo or Nani in the modern era, or the late, great George Best in the 60s and 70s.

Antony gets people on the edge of their seats, and at only 23 years of age, there is plenty of room for development too.

Which is Antony’s best goal so far?

Antony has now scored seven goals as a Red and most of them have been genuine worldies…

After the international break, we will enter the season run-in and Erik ten Hag will need his players firing on all cylinders if we are to achieve further success on top of our Carabao Cup triumph in February.

He and our fans will surely be hoping our South American wide man will be able to produce further spectacular strikes between now and the campaign’s conclusion, to help fire us to glory.
