Angel Gomes grateful to be given 'amazing' Manchester United debut

Posted May 26, 2017

Angel Gomes says "anything is possible" after replacing Wayne Rooney on Sunday, 10 years after meeting Rooney as a six-year-old.

Gomes, who last week picked up the club's Jimmy Murphy Youth Team Player of the Year Award, joined Edwards, Jeff Whitefoot, Willie Anderson and Norman Whiteside in making his league debut for the club at 16.

It's a work in progress, but overall I don't think we're in a bad spot and it will be nice to pick up some form this week. Scottish Open (July 13-16): The Ireland-Scotland double open to lead into The Open Championship is a delight to me.

In August past year, Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon became the first player born in 2000 to score in a first team English game.

After the match he told MUTV: "Obviously, it's a dream come true". "I can only thank God for this - Thank you everyone for the support".

Real Madrid wins the Spanish league for the first time in five years, avoiding its biggest title drought since the 1980s. La Liga is 38 games long and it rewards consistency. "We have won one and can win another".

The Manchester United and England captain has struggled for first-team games under Jose Mourinho this season, although he has been handed slightly more minutes in recent games.

Speaking ahead of the Palace game, the Portuguese manager talked about the troubles of managing players towards the end of their careers: "It's very hard because during my career I had this kind of situation of getting unbelievable players in the last period of their career". Before coming on, I was speaking to Michael Carrick about how to get into the pockets and stuff and he helped me out a lot when I came on.

The attacking midfielder has been tipped as a future star, with United's Under-23 coach Nicky Butt describing his talent as "ridiculous". I don't know if he wants to come back to Everton.
