Man Utd's Nigeria-Eligible Whizkid Rewrites History Again After Debuting In U18 PLPublished: March 03, 2019
Shola Shoretire continues to etch his name into the history books after setting a new record on Saturday in Manchester United's 2-2 draw with West Brom in the U18 Premier League.
He was aged 15 years and one month when he entered into the game as a 68th minute substitute, replacing Helm for his competitive debut for United U18s.
In doing so, Shoretire became the first player born in 2004 to make an appearance in the U18 Premier League and also became the youngest player to feature in this season's U18 Premier League.
Born in 2003, England U16 sensation Louie Barry was aged 15 years, 2 months and 25 days when he made his U18 Premier League debut for West Brom against Wolves on September 15, 2018.
In December 2018, Shoretire suited up for Manchester United in the UEFA Youth League, aged 14 years, 10 months and 10 days, becoming the youngest player to feature in the competition.
Considered one of the greatest talents at Manchester United Academy, Shoretire made his U18 Premier League debut earlier than Arsenal's Daniel Oyegoke (15 years, 4 months and 6 days).
