Kristoffer Ajer continued his excellent recent form for the Norwegian Under-18 side yesterday, when he found the net from a tight angle to help secure a 3-1 win over Romania.
The teenager has struggled for first-team game time since moving to Celtic from IK Start in his homeland last summer, but continues to impress on international duty.
With the match evenly poised at 1-1, the composed 18-year-old, who also captains the side, controlled the ball inside the penalty area with just four minutes remaining, and proceeded to smash it beyond the opposition goalkeeper.
The youngster proudly showed off his strike on Twitter after the game yesterday:

The Norwegian youth side now face the Netherlands in their next match, in what will surely be an intriguing test of Ajer’s development.
Last month, we told you how Ajer had scored a 25-yard screamer for the Norwegians, and he definitely seems to have a penchant for finding the back of the net.
What do you think of his goal? And what do you make of his chances of forcing an opportunity in the Celtic senior team?
