Video: Souleymane Doukara scores absolutely brilliant goal for Leeds U21s

Leeds United

The Leeds United striker impressed in a run-out for the under-21s this week.

Leeds United forward Souleymane Doukara may have only had limited game-time for the first-team this season, but he reminded manager Uwe Rosler exactly what he is capable of with a wonder-strike for the club’s under-21s earlier this week.

Doukara scored an absolute beauty in a 3-3 draw with Queens Park Rangers, flicking the ball up with his first touch before smashing it expertly past the opposing goalkeeper with his second.

It was a sight to behold, and while Leeds youngster Lee Erwin netted a brace of his own it was Doukara’s strike that lingered in the memory.

Erwin could well head out on loan in search of regular first-team football in the coming weeks, leaving Doukara as the undisputed third choice striking option behind Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci at Elland Road.

So far this season the Senegal player has racked up just 31 minutes in the Championship and 97 minutes in all competitions but, as he showed on Monday, he has the talent to be that spark from the bench that Leeds may well need at times between now and the end of the campaign.
