Aston Villa fans react to Carney Chukwuemeka video
A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to react to a video showing Carney Chukwuemeka producing an outstanding assist while on international duty this week.
Chukwuemeka was part of the England under-19 side that took on Italy and Germany in this break.
The 17-year-old was actually named captain ahead of the Italy game. Remarkably, the youngster was making his debut at that level in that fixture.
And he went on to make a big impact in Monday’s clash with the Germans.
The teenager produced an outstanding run into the box to set up Dane Scarlett for the equaliser after the home side had initially taken the lead.
He displayed his strength to hold off a defender as he got closer and closer to the six-yard box. And he also included a couple of delicious touches to keep possession before finding Scarlett, who tapped home.
Unsurprisingly, a clip of the goal has caught the attention of a number of Aston Villa fans on social media. Many are incredibly excited about his future.
‘Reminiscent of someone’: Aston Villa fans react to Chukwuemeka video
The starlet made his first start for Dean Smith’s side in the game with Brentford ahead of the international break. And many have implored Smith to give him a lot more chances moving forward.
Some have compared the assist with something they would have previously seen Jack Grealish produce.
There are definitely similarities. Chukwuemeka dances in from the left with the ball seemingly glued to his feet.
And there certainly are incredibly high hopes for his future.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Aston Villa fans made of the video of Chukwuemeka’s assist…
That was reminiscent of someone….

It’s so impressive how much our academy has improved over the last 3 years. We’ve gone from nobody with potential to become top PL players to an FA Youth cup win and at least 6/7 that have that potential to become PL regulars #AVFC https://t.co/kxN7FCnYFf
