Manchester United Wonderkid Shows Amazing Pace And Skill In Solo Goal
Teenage Man United striker Anthony Elanga showcased his raw pace, dribbling and finishing skills in an epic solo goal over Newcastle's U18 side.
Wearing the No 9 shirt, fans could be fooled into thinking the Swedish sensation was Anthony Martial at his best in the video on Rising Ballers.
A youth talent platform and community, RB have made a massive name for themselves by highlighting the best wonderkids in world football long before they go on to superstardom.

Elanga, who's been prolific at U18 level and earned comparisons with Mason Greenwood, is all set to make his first-team debut this season. But he's far from the only fresh talent that Rising Ballers have picked out.
Alphonso Davies was spotlighted before he became the unstoppable left-sided machine we know and fear. While Lyon's Rayan Cherki, Arsenal's Luke Plange, plus kids as young as nine and six years old have all had their skills displayed in recent weeks.

@lukeplange9 (17) has a chance to step up after Sam Greenwood left for Leeds. He was on the bench a few times for the U23s last season :eyes: Left-footed ballers hit differently don't @ me :dart: (@risingballers)_____________________________________________________ #arsenalfc #afc #arsenal #saka #lacazette #prem #aubameyang #epl

Displaying shining examples of Project Mbappe, from training ground to five-a-side pitch, Rising Ballers reaches over 10 million people each month, all eager to catch the next big thing before they blow up.
(Or just to laugh at some keepers/defenders getting humiliated by someone who should really be at school. Either is good.)
Between the highlight videos and breaking news of youth-player transfers and loans, Rising Ballers have a larger aim. That's to be a voice to promote and develop young talent.
Rising Ballers FC, a men's team launched in 2018, is made up of the best unsigned players aged 16 to 21, giving them a live platform to show what they can do. In the team's first season, seven players got signed by pro clubs - three to Premier League sides.
Alongside that, Rising Ballers Academy offers coaching and youth-team games to improve players aged 13 to 18, opening up a route to trials at professional clubs.
The commitment to grassroots football took another leap in 2019 with Rising Ballers College - a full-time football and education program in London - offering top coaching, university and occupational pathways, US scholarship options and academy opportunities.
Superb stuff and this is just the start. What next? Rising Ballers Hot Sauce? Perfect for all the spicy young RB players that are ready to set the pro game on fire.
