Swansea City gave Brentford a good hiding to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, beating their Championship cohorts 4-1 at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans actually went in at half-time a goal down only to answer with four goals after the restart – the second of which being scored by 21-year-old midfielder Daniel James.
Indeed, after a Brentford set-piece broke down on the edge of the area, James unleashed his phenomenal pace to carry the ball all the way to the opposite end of the pitch in a matter of seconds before steering a low finish past Luke Daniels…
Who’d win a race between Daniel James and Kylian Mbappé? 😧🔥
There was no stopping the 21-year-old on his way to goal.

James went on to put in a Man of the Match shift, playing his part in three of Swansea’s four goals.
The youngster was heavily linked with a move to Leeds in January with a potential £20million offer even bandied about by some sources.
That money might be a little strong, but with pace like that, it probably won’t be long until the Swans’ board decide to cash in on their asset. They don’t usually take much cajoling.
