It was simply a wonderful piece of skill from Sammy Ameobi yesterday, when he smashed the ball into the back of the net from all of 30 yards out, and when you saw the TV shots behind the goal, you could see how the ball was moving all over the place and goalkeeper Allan McGregor could do little about it.
I almost fell off my chair watching those replays.
Sammy Ameobi after scoring wonder goal yesterday
We’ve always known that Sammy has great ability, and it’s the consistency that’s not in his game – but John Carver has revealed it’s a confidence thing with the 22 year-old, and he needs to start believing in himself.
This is what John Carver said after the game about the younger brother of Shola:
“Sammy has got ability, he has just got to start believing in himself because we all believe in him, and start producing on a regular basis.”
“The World could be his oyster, he has magnificent ability and I have always said this to Shola, ‘your brother has got more ability than you have’.”
“But Shola had a fantastic attitude, if Sammy can match those two things then we have got ourselves a player.”
It;s really up to Sammy now, and his contract runs out in the summer, so he will be wanting to get a new deal to stay at the club.
More goals like the one yesterday will help with that.
Here’s his goal – simply magnificent.
