Manchester United loanee makes Championship Team of the Week after netting debut career goal

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:
