It didn’t take long for social media to explode, given the news that Francesco Camarda scored his first goal for AC Milan’s Primavera side this afternoon.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report how Camarda’s goal against Sassuolo is the first goal scored by a 2008-born player in the Primavera. Accustomed to shining under age, the 15-year-old scored over 400 goals in the youth sectors, and now he has made another step up.
It was a flash of pure opportunism from the teenager to make it 2-0 against the Neroverdi and seal the win, one could say Inzaghi-like, but he wasn’t even born when Super Pippo’s brace knocked out Liverpool in Athens.
On a powerful free kick taken by Perrucci, Camarda – who came off the bench – was pushed by pure instinct to direct goalkeeper Theiner’s rebound into the net.
It was a performance of grit and determination from Ignazio Abate’s side, dragged forward by the liveliness of Bonomi who deserved a goal.
Camarda had just returned from commitments with the U17 national team (obviously he is the youngest there too) and kept a particular eye on by Pioli, who gave him his debut among the senior on 9 August in the Milanello friendly match with Trento.
Milan – who will host Newcastle in the Youth League on Tuesday – are alone at the top at least until Monday when Juventus will challenge Empoli.
