Dundee United youngster John Souttar proved anything Paul Pogba can do, he can do better with this beautiful trick shot effort.
A clip of Pogba scoring from yards behind the goal during Juventus training went viral earlier this year.
It was an impressive shot which demonstrates all of the French midfielder’s quality on the ball:

But what about the below from 18-year-old Scottish defender Souttar?
Drop him about 20 yards further back than Pogba, make him use the outside of his strong right foot and watch something beautiful unfold:

The reaction of his Dundee United team-mates is brilliant – and another example of how much ability Souttar has.
He broke into Jackie McNamara’s first-team squad at Tannadice in 2013 at the age of 16 and became the youngest player ever to appear for the club.
This season could see him finally play a consistent role for United and realise the potential many believe he’s had since emerging from the club’s youth academy alongside Ryan Gauld – who now plays for Sporting Lisbon after a £3million move to the Portuguese giants one year ago.
Oh, and what about Robbie Muirhead’s hair?
