Premier League starlet hits 40-yard screamer against Middlesbrough

Remember the name Emyr Huws - because you're bound to be hearing it time and time again over the next few years.

The talented youngster has been spoken about as a huge prospect in recent years - but it seems as though he is ready to show the world what he can do.

Huws is currently out on loan with Birmingham City, but it surely won't be too long before he breaks through with parent club Manchester City if he keeps on doing things like this.

While he couldn't help the Blues secure a victory against Middlesbrough, his stunning 40-yard strike certainly was the highlight of the encounter at the Riverside.

Huws picked up the ball near the right touchline but was initially forced away from goal.

'Boro may have thought the danger was gone but the 20-year-old Manchester City starlet soon turned and bore down on goal, before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the net.

Such was the panache and power of the youngster's strike that it instantly bought to mind similar goals scored by his countryman Gareth Bale.

Indeed, Huws, who won his first cap for Wales last month, can look forward to being compared to the Real Madrid superstar for many years yet.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini won't mind that of course...

Check out his brilliant goal above!
