MILAN HAVE BEEN on a solid run recently. Since the turn of the year, they’ve lost just once in all competitions.

Today, they extended their unbeaten spell with a come-from-behind 1-1 draw against Udinese.

Though it was Mbaye Niang who came up trumps with the equaliser for the Rossoneri, the standout performer was their 16-year-old goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Udinese opened the scoring after 17 minutes but it came about after a superb double-save by the teenager, who deserved better.

And just before Niang leveled, the brilliant youngster conjured another immense point-blank stop to keep it at 1-0.

A star at 16 years of age and destined for an amazing future in the game. What a story.
