Adam Forshaw told On The Ball over the weekend that he was stunned by a moment of genius from teenage winger Crysencio Summerville during Under-23 training – with the long-term Leeds United absentee finally getting back into the swing of things after more than 18 months on the sidelines with a hip problem. Now, Summerville might have posted a video, to illustrate Forshaw’s words.
Forshaw has finally returned to training, telling On The Ball that he has been training with Mark Jackson’s side since the middle of March – when the reserves beat Newcastle United in Premier League 2. During the interview, it is claimed that the ex-Middlesbrough midfielder raved about the likes of Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, Max Dean and Charlie Cresswell.
But Forshaw, once linked with an England call-up during his time on Teesside, spoke of a moment of brilliance from Summerville. The pocket-sized winger has certainly caught the eye at Thorp Arch since his £900,000 move from Feyenoord last summer – scoring five goals and creating seven more during his 11 Under-23 appearances for the Yorkshire side’s 23’s.
Forshaw labelled a goal scored by the ex-Dordrecht and ADO Den Haag loanee as “something out of a video game” as he ‘danced around seven or eight players’ before scoring. Leeds fans could only imagine a Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi-like effort from the Netherlands Under-19 international. Now, they have been given the benefit of a video.
Indeed, Summerville has posted said video on his Instagram story. Uploading the effort on Tuesday evening, it sees Summerville dance past numerous Leeds players in what looks like 23’s training – potentially murderball – before rounding the goalkeeper and tapping home. Truly remarkable from the young attacker.
