Ronaldo Vieira sent a Twitter message to fans after scoring on his debut for the England Under-21 side – and they’re delighted for the 19-year-old midfielder.
Vieira picked the ball up midway through the opposition half and ran on before unleashing a thunderbolt that hit the back of the net.
The England Under-21s beat Qatar 4-0 in the game at the Toulon tournament on Friday.
Delighted to make my debut for England U21s today and very happy to get a goal!🙌🏾🦁🦁🦁 https://t.co/viMgNBBQaQ

Vieira made 28 appearances in the Championship last season but there’s a feeling that he’s just starting to hit his stride.
Playing and scoring for the Under-21s will help boost his confidence and Leeds fans are delighted for the 19-year-old, who could be ready to finally deliver on his promise at Elland Road next season.
One fan said that he was destined for greatness, while another told him to look after his knees ready for the start of next season with Leeds.
Steven Gerrard was reportedly in the crowd looking over the youngsters play as he starts his revamp at Rangers.
And he will have been impressed by the performances of the Young Lions.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to Vieira’s goal and Twitter message:
…and the goal was …kind of magic 🙂 #congrats
