Alejandro Garnacho does Ronaldo's Siuu celebration and then wears Argentina flag after leading Manchester United to FA Youth Cup win
Alejandro Garnacho is the incredible young talent who gets to train with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
There was evidence of both of those as he fired Manchester United to a FA Youth Cup final win over Nottingham Forest.
Garnacho scored two second half goals in the 3-1 win to seal Manchester United’s first win in the competition since 2011.
The youngster struck his first goal from the penalty spot, after a questionable decision, he stepped up to coolly dispatch his effort from 12 yards out.
Garnacho does Ronaldo’s Siuu celebration
Garnacho celebrated the goal like his idol Cristiano Ronaldo, a player who he touted as the best ever.
He had time to grab another, making it seven goals in six FA Youth Cup games, and 19 this season in all competitions.
Then wears the Argentina flag
Garnacho was called into the Argentina international team last month, at just 17-years-old, a remarkable feat.
He was also eligible to play for Spain, but is fully committed to the South American country, which he showed after the game.
The teenager draped himself with an Argentina flag at the final whistle, which he carried into the trophy lift pictures.
The future is bright for Garnacho, Manchester United, and Argentina. The youngster is a superbly talented prospect who has the temperament to step up in big moments.
He has thrived on the big stage at Old Trafford, scoring regularly in this competition at the stadium, and for the under-23s.
He showed great composure to take his decisive penalty in front of the Stretford End, and celebrate like his idol Ronaldo.
They have already shared a pitch for the first team together, and it might not be too long before they are in the same starting line-up, while Lionel Messi awaits at international level too.
