Amad Diallo scores stunning goal for Sunderland in Championship play-off

Amad Diallo continued his amazing season on loan with Sunderland in the Championship, with a stunning goal in the play-offs against Luton Town.

A young Sunderland team have done brilliantly well just to make the end of season play-offs, earning a game against third placed Luton by defeating Preston North End on the final day of the league season.

Diallo has certainly been a major part of that season, whilst on loan from Manchester United for the whole season with Tony Mowbray's side.

His form has even caught they eye of United, who are ready to include him in their FA Cup final plans next month so he can be part of the team.



Before he goes back to Old Trafford this summer, Diallo will be trying to help the Black Cats return to the Premier League themselves.

Life in the play-offs didn't get off to a great start at the Stadium of Light however, with Luton star Elijah Adebayo opening the scoring after 11 minutes.

The lead did not last until half time though, with Diallo showing off his goalscoring prowess from outside the area, which is starting to become a bit of a signature.


A free kick was taken short to the former Atalanta youngster, who curled the ball into the far side of the goal in perfect fashion.

"Stunning goal from the seriously talented Amad Diallo. A thing of beauty that levels it," Gary Lineker said.

"Amad Diallo is Special!!!", one United fan added.


"Amad Diallo is simply ridiculous," claimed another.

A third beamed, "Amad you absolute superstar."

With Alejandro Garnacho scoring for United against Wolves earlier on Saturday many were getting excited to see the pair together, with one fan exclaiming, "Amad Diallo and Garnacho running at defences going to be dangerous. Not for us tho."

"Amad Diallo, questionably one of our best ever loans development wise?", pondered another.
