Teenage Wonderkid Karim Adeyemi Scores Terrific First Champions League Goal

Red Bull Salzburg's 18-year-old Karim Adeyemi scored his first Champions League on Tuesday night - and it was a cracker.

Adeyemi started sprinting inside his own half, then robbed possession from Lokomotiv Moscow's Murilo Cerqueira as he miscontrolled the ball, bearing down on the opponent's goal at top speed.

Veteran defender Vedran Corluka got back to cut him off - but Adeyemi had the cool head to slow down, find space outside Corluka, then slot the ball home.

It was a terrific display of electric pace, icy coolness and finishing prowess.

He also celebrated with a magnificent front-flip celebration and a 'Gladiator' style roar. Yes, we are entertained.

The Munich-born striker has netted goals for Germany's Under-16 and Under-17 sides, but clearly this was the biggest stage of his career. And his goal was a crucial one as it helped Salzburg - who had seen their 2-0 lead cut to 2-1 minutes earlier - seal a 3-1 away win.

That puts the Austrian side in the driving seat for Europa League football (with giants Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid qualified from Group A with a game to go).

At least we could get to see more of Karim Adeyemi's talents in Europe this season. Definitely a name and a player to watch.
