Oh, Football friends (little ‘Inbetweeners’ reference there for you).
Welcome to the Premier League, John Lundstram, it looks like you’re going to do just fine.
The 25-year-old scored Sheffield United’s first goal back at Bramall Lane in the Premier League on Sunday as the Blades grabbed all three points against Crystal Palace.
This achievement is made all the more impressive when you consider the fact that Lundstram struggled to break into the first team at Goodison Park and departed Merseyside on a permanent deal in 2015 after a nomadic, loan-littered Everton career.
He then joined Oxford United in an effort to restart his climb back up the ladder, which is where he met “(oooo) football friend” Kemar Roofe, another one of football’s hopefuls. With the Premier League dream set firmly in their sights, the pair (probably) made a pact: whoever fails to score the first goal in top flight football must, without hesitation, post a throwback to their Instagram story.
Considering Roofe recently ditched English football, there was only going to be one winner…
We wonder if he predicted Anderlecht’s form at the beginning of the 2019/20 season as well?
