Manchester United loanee Hannibal Mejbri has been included in the Championship Team of the Week.
The 20-year-old is currently enjoying a season-long loan spell at Birmingham City and has registered one goal and five assists so far this campaign.
Last week, he provided a crucial injury-time assist to secure all three points for the Midlands side in a 4-3 win over Swansea City.
This weekend Hannibal’s fine form has continued, as he marked a memorable day in his senior career by scoring his debut goal. It opened the scoring in a home clash with rivals West Brom at St. Andrew’s, in a match that ultimately swung in City’s favour.
Hannibal’s first senior goal
The Tunisian cleverly spotted goalkeeper David Button standing off of his goalline whilst lining up the free-kick, and went on to strike it past the wall and straight into the back of the net – a sensational finish. Take a look at the goal below:
