Manchester United fans were overjoyed with James Wilson’s goal against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, with many now calling for him to start more games.
The young English striker came off the bench and scored to ensure Manchester United won the game. The likes of Robin van Persie and Falcao have struggled to score on a regular basis, and this goal could give Wilson more chances.
Wilson is just 19, and with many Manchester United fans already feeling he should start ahead of the likes of Falcao and van Persie, it looks like the young striker has a big career ahead of him. His goal against QPR was his third in the Premier League, after scoring a brace at the end of last season.
The more game time he gets for Manchester United, the more likely England will have another quality striker available for selection. Hopefully Wilson has a good career for club and country.
Here’s how Manchester United fans reacted on Twitter following the youngsters performance:

James Wilson is 19. Scores for Manchester United. Falcao the first one hugging you. Great feeling. Keep it in your heart, young kid
