Nathan Young-Coombes only joined Rangers a matter of weeks ago from Chelsea, but he is already making quite the impression.
The 16-year-old has been a star man during the U17s progression through the prestigious ALKASS Cup in Doha, Qatar.
It’s the Gers’s first entry into the tournament, but they already have a chance of lifting the trophy.
Partially due to the heroics of Young-Coombes, they have secured a spot in Friday’s final against AS Roma.
Earlier in the competition, he scored a stunning hat-trick in the 7-0 win over Etolie Sportive du Sahel (ESS).
Each goal demonstrated an impressive composure in front of goal for such a young player.
Remarkably, he was at it again on Wednesday.
He scored Rangers’ second goal in a 5-1 semi-final rout over Kashiwa Reysol.
Sprinting clear of three defenders, he bursts into the box and fires in a left-footed shot at the near post.

That was to be his only goal of the game, but it doesn’t mean that’s the only way he impressed onlookers.
He also pulled off an outrageous piece of skill in the first half, which almost turned into a spectacular assist.
Check this skill out 😍 pic.twitter.com/mC9cIcm8aR
