Wilson hailed as new Bale

The Welsh youngster, on loan from Liverpool, sent social media into meltdown after starring in Derby’s dramatic Carabao Cup win over Jose Mourinho’s men.

The 21-year-old said post-match after winning 8-7 on penalties: “I’ve tried it a lot in training so I’m glad it came off – I just put my laces through it and it hit the net.”

Rams boss Frank Lampard admitted he told the bench it was too far out to shoot before Wilson hit his Bale-esque set-piece.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp even said it was one of “the greatest goals he’s ever seen”.

And social media were as equally impressed, and believe that one strike has elevated him to the levels of the four-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid.
