Demarai Gray (Birmingham) scores a brilliant solo golazo in a friendly with Manchester United

With on loan Manchester United forward, Jesse Lingard, already a vital part of Birmingham City’s squad, the Blues travelled to Carrington on Thursday for a friendly with the Red Devils.

Played to keep players match fit during the International break, one player really shone for Birmingham as they eased to a 3-1 win.

Aged 17, Demarai Gray netted a wonderful solo goal for the blues as he showed great strength and skill to get past players before finishing cooly into the bottom corner following a one-two.

Birmingham coach Steve Watson said “It was a fantastic goal from Dimmi. He turned two men 30 yards out, played a one-two with Reece, who weighted his reverse pass perfectly, and went on to slot past the ‘keeper.”
