Harry Wilson scored yet another stunning goal direct from a free-kick to take his season’s tally to nine goals for Derby County.
The Welshman has once again hit the headlines as his knack for scoring spectacular goals for Derby continued during their meeting with Sheffield United on Boxing Day.
The Rams had fallen a goal behind in the first half, before a free-kick awarded five yards outside the penalty area provided an opportunity to level the scores early in the second 45—and Wilson did not disappoint.
The 21-year-old looked as cool as ice as he dispatched a thunderous strike, which clipped the crossbar and nestled into the far corner, leaving United keeper Dean Henderson rooted to the spot.
The winger’s effort took his tally for Derby to nine—his fifth in the last seven games—and his fifth from direct free-kicks this term.

Although Wilson’s goal handed Derby the opportunity to take at least a point from the Championship clash, Frank Lampard’s side eventually fell to a 3-1 defeat at Bramall Lane to leave them in sixth position, level on points with fifth-place Middlesbrough.
Wilson has been in blistering form for Lampard’s side after joining the club on a season-long loan deal in the summer, where he has been reaping the rewards from a consistent run of games in the first team.
With 22 appearances in all competitions for Derby to date, Wilson is showing all the signs of growing into an attacking player Liverpool can look for added depth next season.
