Video: Chem Campbell scores an absolute stunner for Wolves U21s

Goals have again proven hard to come by for Wolves this season, but Chem Campbell showed his ability to find the net last night with a ridiculous strike for the U21s.

Campbell has yet to get a proper chance for the first-team this season.

He was handed a five-minute cameo in the opening game against Leeds United when Bruno Lage was missed several players.

At the weekend, he only made the bench after a late call to remove Raul Jimenez from the matchday squad due to injury.

But the youngster was back in action for the U21s on Monday night.

And Campbell ended up going somewhat viral on social media last night, after he scored an absolute thunderbolt.

James Collins’ side were taking on Fulham and were 1-0 down heading into the final 10 minutes.

The hosts had been much the better side, with Cottagers goalkeeper George Wickens having made a string of saves.

It was perhaps going to take something special to beat him, and Campbell duly obliged.

The 19-year-old picked the ball up from the left side around 25 yards out and unleashed an unstoppable right-footed drive into the top corner. It clipped the underside of the crossbar on its way in.

The strike was so pure, powerful and accurate that it would likely have beaten most senior goalkeepers.

Chem Campbell should get a loan move next season

It was an outstanding strike from Campbell, who has once again stolen the headlines at youth level.

He had a brilliant campaign last time out, which led to a Premier League debut against Newcastle United back in April. That prompted Collins to say that the teenager had ‘matured as a man’ and was ‘a very talented boy’.

First-team minutes are going to be hard to come by this term following the arrival of Goncalo Guedes. And it looks as though Diego Costa may be coming in, which would decrease his chances of making matchday squads further.

Hopefully he can enjoy another great season with the U21s.

His goal should be to impress and earn himself a loan move for next season just like Luke Cundle has done for 2022/23.
