Ronaldo Vieira has stated on Twitter that he is “proud to be a part of the club” after helping Leeds secure a late 3-2 victory against Norwich on Saturday evening.
The 18-year-old midfielder started the match from the bench before coming on for Souleymane Doukara with 72 minutes on the clock.
The score stood at 1-1 as he came on just before a Chris Wood goal, which was then cancelled out by Kyle Lafferty.
The bright youth prospect then bagged his club’s winner in additional team, after entering the pitch just 18 minutes beforehand.
Vieira took to his personal Twitter account after the match to hail the “unbelievable performance”, as well as praising the club and his team.

The win gave Leeds the three points, while also elevating them to sixth place which leaves them in the league’s play-off spots.
They currently sit one point ahead of Birmingham in seventh place, while just three points separate 11th from sixth.
However, the famous Yorkshire club will have their eyes set on the clubs ahead of them as they sit just three points behind Huddersfield in third.
Garry Monk’s side are looking to put an end to their 12-year wait for Premier League football and they will face Newcastle at Elland Road next in front of a sell out crowd.
