Young Gunner Henri Lansbury, currently on loan with West Ham United, has a habit of grabbing the headlines. Just recently, the gifted midfielder was deputising (rather well) in goal for the Hammers but against Belgium U21s on Wednesday night, Lansbury scored a rather spectacular goal early on.

To be perfectly honest, it does look like an overhit cross which takes a tiny deflection of the defender, but it’s still well worth a look.

England’s young guns seemed to enjoy their first game without Stuart Pearce at the helm, winning 4-0 courtesy of a brace from Lansbury and goals from Steven Caulker and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (from the penalty spot).
