Former Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion defensive midfielder Keith Andrews praised Aston Villa winger Andre Green on Sky Sports Main Event last Friday night (22:04pm, February 8, 2019).

Green scored in the fourth minute of injury time for Villa, as Dean Smith’s side came from three goals down to play out a 3-3 draw with Sheffield United at Villa Park in the Championship last Friday evening.

It was a brilliant headed goal from the 20-year-old winger, who was recalled from his loan spell at Portsmouth in January.

Andrews, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, has praised Green, and has admitted that he did not expect him to score the header.

Andrews said about Green on Sky Sports Main Event last Friday night (22:04pm, February 8, 2019): “I certainly didn't expect Andre Green to produce a header like that.”

“He is clever as well because he got just enough pressure on George Baldock not to be a foul, just to slightly put him off, and the header was quality,” added Andrews.

Promising talent

Green is a very talented and promising young winger, and the 20-year-old has done well for Villa since he was recalled from his loan spell at Portsmouth.

The youngster has made one start and five substitute appearances in the Championship for the Villans so far this season, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

Against United last Friday evening, during the 25 minuets he was on the pitch, the 20-year-old had a pass accuracy of 80%, and won two headers, according to WhoScored.
