FORMER Manchester United wonderkid Angel Gomes scored a brilliant solo goal to continue his stunning form for new club Boavista.
The versatile attacking midfielder, 20, left Old Trafford on a free transfer after his contract expired in July.

Gomes, who made ten senior appearances for United after starting his career there in 2006, was strongly linked with a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea.
But he ended up joining French side Lille instead, penning a five-year deal.
Gomes was immediately sent on loan to Portuguese outfit Boavista for the season.
And he has since been in fantastic form, scoring three goals and assisting four more in just five games.
Gomes’ latest strike came in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to SC Farense.
And it was some strike indeed, with the forward darting his way through numerous opponents before swivelling to fire home an effort from nearly 30 yards out.
It’s not the first wondergoal Gomes has scored for Boavista, having hit the target from the HALFWAY line with a David Beckham-esque effort last month.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – as well as most United fans – may be wondering whether it was the right decision to let Gomes leave Old Trafford.
But his father, Gil Gomes, is adamant the player’s new-found form has vindicated his United exit.
He told TSF: “Angel accepted the challenge of Luis Campos to sign with Lille and relaunch his career at Boavista on loan from the French club.
“And now he is on the right track, he still has a lot to show.
“Angel managed to show a path to the future by being one of the youngest to make his debut for United when the coach was Jose Mourinho, and that also helped him a lot.”
