Sheffield Wednesday talent and son of legend David Hirst scores brace on England under-17 debut

Sheffield Wednesday 2

George Hirst looks every inch as talented as his dad.

Sheffield Wednesday fans have many fond memories of their former striker David Hirst. The Owls had the big Yorkshireman upfront from 1986 until 1997. He scored over 100 goals in his Sheffield Wednesday career in nearly 300 appearances for the club.

Now they might have a perfect suitor coming through the ranks, in his son George.

The teenager has been in great form for the under-18s in recent times and last season even featured for the under-21s - he even scored against local rivals Sheffield United.

Today he made his debut for the England under-17s in Portugal as they took on Germany and had a dream first appearance at this level for his nation.

He scored twice in the opening 25 minutes of the game to give his nation a 2-0 lead against the much-fancied Germans, in a game which eventually ended 2-2.

He netted in the 17th and 24th minute to rubber stamp his credentials as a future England star and potentially with Sheffield Wednesday as well.

The club have recently been recruiting most of their stars but Wednesday fans will certainly hope that Hirst can eventually make his breakthrough into the first-team.
