Manchester United's Tom Lawrence scored two ridiculous goals for Carlisle United, where the Welsh youngster is on loan.

Tom Lawrence scored two incredible goals for Carlisle United in a 4-1 win against Tranmere Rovers earlier in League One.

His first goal was a long-range screamer while he then danced past several players, showing remarkable footwork before a cool finish to help his side to a comprehensive win.

A video of the second goal, with thanks to @ManUnitedYouth, who you should all be following, is here.

Update: Here's the first, courtesy of the same source. The second was pretty hyped, but that is just as good.

Shades of another Welshman - Giggs against Arsenal in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final, perhaps? Albeit at at a slightly lower level of performance.

Lawrence is on loan at Carlisle United and has been tipped for a Wales call-up in the near future. He's regarded as one of the brighter prospects in the United reserves and academy. He's also a stalwart of my FC United side on Football Manager, where he's usually released by Manchester United. It looks like that may not be happening in real life.

Thanks again to @ManUnitedYouth for the videos.
