'Absolutely electric': BBC pundit blown away by Leeds player in first half v Bournemouth
Leeds and Bournemouth are playing out an entertaining game at Elland Road this afternoon and Crysencio Summerville has been catching the eye.
Summerville is once again in the starting XI for Leeds. Jesse Marsch appears to be putting his trust in the young winger, who got the winner against Liverpool last week.
Today against Bournemouth, the youngster is at it again. Summerville won the penalty which gave Leeds an early lead.
And watching on for BBC commentary, former Scotland international James McFadden was blown away by how good the play was from Summerville to win the penalty.
“That’s absolutely electric from Summerville and the pace that he shows to get on the end of it and win the penalty. Direct running and it’s clumsy from Senesi. What a start for Leeds,” McFadden said.
“What a cool penalty from Rodrigo. He’s looking at Travers the whole time, Travers blinks first, dives to his left hand side while Rodrigo keeps his composure and just side foots it into the opposite corner.”
Summerville is looking to make the most of his opportunities this season. After starring for the 23s for much of last season, the Dutchman certainly looks the part so far.
TBR’s View: Summerville becoming a big player for Leeds
Crycensio Summerville has had to wait patiently for his chances at Leeds. But right now, he seems to be taking them.
The 21-year-old looks every bit the Premier League player Leeds fans have been hoping to see for years now. The piece of play highlighted here by McFadden is just a snapshot of his brilliance.
Leeds, of course, will need more of the same from Summerville if they’re to fight back and win the second 45. At the moment, Leeds are looking far too open at the back, meaning Summerville’s efforts are in vain.
