Two assists in two games : Man Utd rising star Shoretire catching the eye in pre-season
Talented youngster of Nigerian descent Shola Shoretire is proving his worth in pre-season with Manchester United first team, with a goal involvement in each of the two games played so far.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær is once again taking a look at the promising striker with several of his first teamers yet to report for club duties due to their international commitments at the European Championship, Copa America and Olympic Games.

Against Derby County, Shoretire assisted Facundo Pellistri to score United's second goal, showing his intelligence to recognize that the Uruguayan was onside before picking him out with a through ball.

And in the next friendly against a very descent Championship side in Queens Park Rangers, the England youth international showed he has an eye for a pass and knows how to read a game when he found Anthony Elanga, whose well-struck shot left the Hoops goalkeeper completely helpless.

The 17-year-old announced himself last season, winning the prestigious Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year after scoring 10 goals in the Premier League 2 and making debuts off the bench in the Premier League and Europa League.

From his earliest days with the Manchester United academy, Shoretire has been earmarked as a precocious talent, playing up the age groups.

The Anglo-Nigerian made his competitive debut for the U18s while still a schoolboy and broke into the U23 squad at the age of sixteen.
