Barcelona youngster leaves defenders in his wake to score filthy solo goal

17-year-old Jordi Mboula is definitely one to keep an eye out for in the future.

JORDI MBOULA SCORED one of the best solo goals you will see this season as he helped Barcelona down Borussia Dortmund 4-1 to reach the Uefa Youth League quarter-finals.

The Blaugrana fell behind to a Dominik Wanner strike after just six minutes but Mboula was on target to help his side complete a fantastic comeback. Carlos Perez, Abel Ruiz and Seungwoo Lee all found the back of the net to put Barca 3-1 ahead in the tie before Mboula stepped up with a piece of individual genius.

Collecting the ball down the right-hand side of the field, Mboula danced past one Dortmund defender before embarking on a solo run which Lionel Messi would have been proud of. Mboula showed brilliant pace and close control to drive into the penalty area before slotting calmly into the back of the net to seal Barca’s passage into the last eight.

One to watch for the future, 17-year-old Mboula is a Spanish underage international who was born in 1999 to a Congolese father and a Catalan mother.

Barca’s U19s, coached by Gabri Garcia, will now take on Porto in the quarter-finals of the competition.
