Watch West Brom’s Berahino’s stunning strike

West Brom Striker Saido BerahinoSaido Berahino may not be a name you’re overly familiar with. The 20 year old has come from nowhere in starting the season in highly impressive form.

The West Brom striker has spent time on loan at Northampton, Brentford and Peterborough as he looked for his career to take off. Well, it seems it has. Berahino’s first England under 21s goal came just a week after he hit a hat-trick in the Capital One Cup against Newport County for Baggies.

There is more than what meets the eye with this young man though. Born in Burundi, he came to the UK in 2003 after fleeing a civil war in the country of his birth which claimed the life of his father. Settling in Birmingham, he quickly used football as a way to integrate himself into an unfamiliar country with unfamiliar surroundings. A truly great story that Berahino has gone on to represent England at this level.

A great finish too. Expect to see more of Berahino in the Premier League this season as West Brom look for man to fill the boots of Romelu Lukaku. Berahino could just be that man, if he keeps up this form, it won’t be long until he bags his first Premier League goal…

The video does eventually show the goal…we promise…
