Leeds United fans on Twitter have been impressed with Alfie McCalmont for playing two games in two days.

McCalmont made his senior debut for the Northern Ireland national football team against Luxembourg on Thursday.

Then on Friday, the 19-year-old central midfielder was in action for the Northern Ireland Under-21 side against their Malta counterparts.

 

These matches came just days after the talented and promising teenager was on the substitutes’ bench for Leeds’s game against Swansea City and then playing for the West Yorkshire outfit’s Under-23 side against their Bristol City counterparts.

Leeds fans have been impressed with how McCalmont has taken everything in his stride and have praised him on Twitter.

Below are some of the best comments:

Rising star

McCalmont is only 19 years of age, and it will take him a while to establish himself as a regular in the Leeds first team team.

For now, the Northern Ireland international should focus on playing well for the Whites’ Under-23 side and making the most of the chances he will get with the senior team this season.
