Manchester United youngster Isak Hansen-Aaroen scored a consolation goal for Norway’s Under-18s side in a 3-1 defeat to Iceland yesterday.
The 18-year-old midfielder, who came off the bench just shy of the hour mark, netted a neat finish off the post in the closing stages of the match.
Donning the number ten jersey, Hansen-Aaroen calmly slotted the ball through the defender’s legs and into the far bottom corner to showcase the technical qualities he possesses.
The defeat against Iceland was Norway’s first match in a three-man tournament which is being held in Sweden.
After impressing off the bench and making a telling contribution, Hansen-Aaroen will be hoping to start Tuesday’s clash against Sweden.
