Red Devil teen scores solo goal for Young Lions but is the Manchester United hotshot one of the next starlets to follow Adnan Januzaj into the seniors?

One of the stars in what had been a black hole of a half-season for Manchester United, Adnan Januzaj, has captured the imaginations of scribes and fans alike due to his creativity, vision and ability to influence a game in a manner that belies his age - 18.

While manager David Moyes has attempted to recruit a number of elite-level players, like Francesc Fabregas last summer, potentially Paul Pogba in the current window while securing the acquisition of former Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata, United remain an outfit with a strong academy.

It begs the question where their next Januzaj is coming from. When Andreas Pereira scored a delight of a goal against Burnley in the FA Youth Cup recently, many touted him as the next starlet to progress into Moyes' senior selection - a call aided by their shared nationality drama as Pereira, like Januzaj, was born in Belgium yet they both have dual passports leaving other countries desperate to secure their respective international futures.

In the same game, highly-rated Englishman James Wilson also excelled - an 18-year-old who has stood out at every level of football he has competed in.

That's two fledglings… is there now a third?

as trick-filled left winger Demetri Mitchell scored a highlight reel lob for the England U17 team, ironically, against Belgium, although the Young Lions finished the game on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline.

Who do you rate the most out of Pereira, Wilson and Mitchell?
