Manchester United youngster Isak Hansen-Aaroen has begun the season in very good form at academy level.
Isak Hansen-Aaroen continues to stand out each and every time he gets on the pitch, no matter the level.
Hansen-Aaroen looked bright in early first team pre-season games and has been a standout at under-21 level this season too for Manchester United.
Now he is taking that form to international youth level too, on the scoresheet for Norway yesterday.
Isak Hansen-Aaroen on target
Isak Hansen-Aaroen was part of a Norway under-21 team which defeated their San Marino counterparts 4-0 yesterday.
He was on the scoresheet, starting off a move before finishing it with a low shot into the bottom corner.

This was a great way for Hansen-Aaroen to mark his under-21 debut for his country, continuing a progression which has been in the works for several years.
Hansen-Aaroen has represented his country from under-15 level all the way up to under-19s, scoring nine goals to this point.
This was his 10th goal wearing Norway colours, and is unlikely to be the last. He will want to make the jump to senior level soon, just as he aspires with his club.
Isak Hansen-Aaroen close, but not close enough
Isak Hansen-Aaroen has played for United in pre-season games, but seems stuck at under-21 level for now. That can change, of course, in the way that teammate Kobbie Mainoo only stepped up in his first season in January, rather than before.
United did not send Hansen-Aaroen on loan, which might be a missed opportunity, and is also intriguing, keeping the door open for a first team rise.
He has been in good form for the under-21s this season, excellent in a recent match with Leeds, and he scored twice in a 10-1 demolition of Stoke.
A late chance missed in a recent draw with Sunderland shows he still needs to be more ruthless at key points in matches, but the Norwegian’s development is going well. This could yet be a big season for him.
