Video: John McGinn Finishes Like a Striker in Aston Villa Win

John McGinn finished like a striker in Aston Villa‘s win over Derby this afternoon.

The former Hibs midfielder has hit the ground running since signing for the English Championship outfit in the summer.

His wonder goal against Sheffield Wednesday has been mentioned a lot, but his overall performances have been one of the positives in an otherwise frustrating Villa season so far.

They sat mid-table going into today’s game against Derby and if they’re to climb the table and compete for promotion then they’ll need to start winning quickly.

Thanks to McGinn and some other quality performances, they did exactly that today – with the Scottish midfield man setting up a goal and scoring one in a 3-0 win away at Derby.

McGinn’s goal was finished like a striker:

It’s good to see McGinn on top form going into Scotland’s Nations League fixtures with Albania and Israel next week.

Hopefully he can produce some quality like this in a Scotland shirt.
