Was part of the under 17 squad for the recent Slovakia trip. Only turned 13 in August which shows how highly he must be thought of. His father was a Potuguese footballer who played for a number of different clubs and has represented Potugals under 21's, he spent the latter part of his career playing for small clubs in Manchester so I presume that's how United came to sign Angel Gomes. Gomes has been playing ahead of his age group for a while now apparently. There was an under 15's tournament held in Ireland a few months ago and onlookers were raving about Gomes, saying he was the standout player, despite being only 12 at the time. 13 is obviously far too young to be bigging up a player, but playing in an under 17's tournament having just turned 13 cannot be ignored.
