Manchester United have five players out on loan so far, and one of them was on the scoresheet this weekend.
After a series of impressive performances in friendly matches, Tahith Chong played his first competitive game for Werder Bremen.
It was a case of easing in for the Dutchman, with Werder playing a cup match against German lower league side FC Carl Zeiss Jena.
Chong came off the bench in the second half with the game goalless, and helped his team secure a 2-0 win.
Chong scored the second goal in the 88th minute, and as Werder noted, it was his first professional strike.
It was an impressive goal, with Chong breaking behind the defence and coolly slotting a one on one past the goalkeeper.
The goal keeps up Chong’s momentum; he has scored several times in pre-season too, ahead of the Bundesliga kick-off next weekend.
Werder’s first match is at 2.30pm on Saturday at home to Hertha Berlin, and Chong will be hoping to start.
