Harry Wilson scored a sensational goal for Derby County last night to silence Old Trafford and lead the Rams to a cup upset.

Wilson's fantastic free-kick left Argentina international goalkeeper Sergio Romero flat footed and helped Derby to a 2-2 draw and penalty shootout win.

There was no better way for Wilson to ingratiate himself to fans of parent club Liverpool than helping knock Manchester United out of the cup.

 

It was a dream night for the young Wales international, who is building himself a big reputation.

Wilson's free-kick was a special one, and had former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp raving.

He told SkySports' post-game coverage that it was up there with the best he has seen.

Redknapp said: "It is one of the best free-kicks I've ever seen. I've seen great goals like Roberto Carlos, and that one took my breath away today.

"It's a great goal. That's not a fluke. He does that all the time in training I'm sure."

Wilson may never score a free-kick quite as good, and goalkeepers will be better prepared, but he has earned plenty of licence to try again.

May be one day he will net against United in a Liverpool shirt.
