Manchester United's young attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard has been making a name for himself on-loan in the Championship over the past couple of season and tonight he further enhanced his reputation with a goal for the England U21 side.
Lingard scored in a friendly match against Germany with a cooly taken side-footed finish. The 22-year old is currently on-loan at promotion hopefuls Derby having impressed at Birmingham last season.
Whether or not Derby are promoted it would be no surprise if Lingard is playing in the Premier League next season. It might be a little too early for that opportunity to come at Old Trafford but on this evidence Manchester United fans should be hopeful that Lingard's chance will eventually come.
