Clarke Oduor scored a superb goal as Leeds United’s under-23s picked up another emphatic win.
Clarke Oduor has joked on Instagram that he was pleased to end his recent run without a goal by scoring in Leeds’ under-23 side’s latest victory, while teammate Will Huffer needed just one word to sum up the outstanding strike on Twitter.
Carlos Corberan’s men won 3-0 against Ipswich Town at Elland Road on Monday night, with Oduor opening the scoring before Gaetano Berardi doubled the lead and Ryan Edmondson completed the rout.
Oduor’s goal came at the end of a brilliant delayed one-two with Jordan Stevens. The winger collected the ball on the right and cut a pass inside to Stevens, who lifted the ball deliciously over the defence for Oduor to chest down and volley home from close range.
It was a stunning goal from the 19-year-old, who made his first-team debut in the FA Cup third round tie with Queens Park Rangers back in January. It was certainly a reminder that Oduor is a name to keep an eye out for in the coming years.
But it appears that the overriding emotion for the teenager was relief as he took to social media to express his delight at ending his run without a goal.
However, perhaps the best reaction to the goal came from another under-23 stalwart in Huffer. The goalkeeper sent out a one-word tweet to sum up what he made of the strike – and it would be no surprise if most of the Leeds supporters completely agreed with his brief statement.
Here is what Oduor and Huffer posted on social media after the win…
