The Young Lions were level at 1-1 coming out of the half-time break but Ledson looped a brilliant 40-yard free kick over the goalkeeper to make it 2-1 after 50 minutes.
England, with Ledson's Everton U18s teammate Callum Connolly also in the side, went on to win 4-1.

Even if he didn't, he must come out and say that it was a shot.
We can then all wait for the "Man City in 㿷m Ledson bid" headlines in the morning!

Great to have 3 Everton players in this very successful youth group. Ledson, Walsh and Connolly. Kenny quite often involved too, not sure if he's injured.
Big responsibility for Martinez and his team to make sure that these lads get the best chance of coming through and ending up as first team players.

Whatever, Leddy is aces and will be England's second best ever.

Think he meant to get a spin on it but I think he did have the wind on his side.

He has his back is to you, Aiden, so how do you know he was "glancing towards the near post"?
I can't see him glancing in that clip - or, if he is glancing, maybe he is glancing up to Row Z for all you know...only saying... :)

Not having seen the rest of the game maybe for some of the earlier freekicks the goalie had been spotted a few times well off his line and this was a speculative shot?
For me his body language as he approaches the ball it looks like it is an intentional shot given the power he hits the ball with.
If you watch the clip the goalie is 5 yards out but doesn't help himself when he steps forward after the balls been struck over the 6 yard box and then starts to backtrack when he realises it's no cross!

As someone said, if it had been a Brazil player or one of the "chosen clubs", it would have been repeated everywhere.
