Aston Villa midfielder Josh Onomah sent the club’s fans supporters into a complete frenzy on social media after producing a sensational strike for the England Under-21 team on Friday evening.
The 20-year-old scored one of the goals of his career as England secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over bitter rivals Scotland at the Riverside Stadium in a European Championship qualifier.
Forwards Tammy Abraham and Dominic Solanke also found themselves on the scoresheet but it was Onomah’s goal which made the headlines.
The Villa loanee broke the deadlock just after 12 minutes when he received the ball on the edge of the area and unleashed an incredible shot which flew into the top corner.
The midfielder’s goal caught the attention of the majority of Villa fans who took to social media to express their delight at the youngster’s effort.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Hard to get too excited from an #avfc POV about Josh Onomah being good, given he'll be back at Spurs by the summer at the latest.

The result means that England currently top their qualification group, having accumulated six victories from eight matches.
Onomah completed a season long-loan move to Villa Park in the summer following his impressive performances for the Under-20 side who lifted the World Cup in South Korea.
The midfielder has contributed in two goals in his debut campaign with the Championship side.
