West Ham United youngster Martin Samuelsen stood out in Peterborough United's FA Cup match against West Bromwich Albion last night.
Peterborough United winger Jon Taylor has sent a message to Martin Samuelsen on Twitter, after the West Ham United loanee shone in the FA Cup last night.
Peterborough took on West Bromwich Albion in an FA Cup fourth round replay at the ABAX Stadium, and they gave their Premier League opponents an almighty scare.
Posh matched West Brom for much of the contest, and it took a penalty shoot out to separate the two sides.
Samuelsen was one of the Peterborough players who missed from 12 yards, but Taylor was quick to encourage the youngster after the match.
18 years of age what a player @samuelseen is going to be, lovely lad too always wanting to learn— Jon Taylor (@jonnytaylor23) February 11, 2016
Taylor was Peterborough’s goalscorer in the tie, but it was Samuelsen’s performance which attracted the most attention.
The 18-year-old has been a revelation since joining Posh on loan, and his display against West Brom went to further highlight his quality.
Samuelsen gave the Baggies’ defence a torrid time, with his skill in possession proving to be a threat all evening.
The Norwegian left numerous West Brom players bamboozled with his dribbling, and his performance has created great excitement about his future.
Samuelsen’s next chance to impress comes on Saturday, when Peterborough take on Bradford City in League One action.
