Video: Billy Gilmour’s Goal Against South Korea Gets Better Every Time You See it

Video: Billy Gilmour’s Goal Against South Korea Gets Better Every Time You See it

Scotland’s U21s booked their place in the semi-finals of the Toulon Tournament after a 2-1 win against South Korea yesterday, with Billy Gilmour scoring a terrific goal in the process.

Gilmour originally made his breakthrough at Rangers, with former boss Graeme Murty claiming the 16-year-old was “very” close to becoming the club’s youngest ever debutant.

However, having turning down a professional contract at Ibrox, Gilmour eventually decided on a switch to Chelsea and he’s quickly developed into one the Stamford Bridge club’s hottest prospects.

And while Oliver Burke’s stunning solo goal against the South Koreans showcased his ability to run at defenders, Gilmour’s opener after just eight minutes showed he has composure far beyond his years:

 

It will no doubt be a real sickener to Gers fans, seeing one of their former youth products doing the business on the international stage after leaving the club.

That being said, you can’t help but take your hat off to his technique.

Definitely one for the future!
