Teenage Cameroon descent midfielder Junior Nsangou continued his brilliant start to the 2021-2022 season with a match-winning performance on Saturday.
The young Cameroonian who can also represent England scored one of the goals and assisted another for Blackburn Rovers Under-18s as they return to winning ways against their Liverpool counterparts.
Nsangou who was starting for the second game in a spin and his fifth appearance for the Riversiders scored the opener eight minutes into the game.
The one-goal lead gave Blackburn the levelheadedness to dominate the game and by the 12th minute Nsangou played a part in doubling the lead.
The midfielder played in Jay Haddow who doubled the lead for the host.
Nsangou who looked to have taken the bull by the horns had made it the Blackburn’s game to lose.
Though Liverpool came close on a number of occasions, Blackburn kept their advantage till the 42nd minute. However, midfielder Bobby Clark pulled one back for Liverpool and made it an interesting last few minutes of the half.
Terence McLaughlin-Miles’ third goal of the season on the struck of half-time restored Blackburn’s two-goal cushion.
At the break, it was 3-1 for Blackburn and remained as such until full-time.
The win can be largely credited for the victory as he had a hand in two of the three goals.
The boy who has been more of a regular and performed with the Under-16s has quickly settled into life in the superior category.
The Blackburn win in the game in which Nsangou lasted the duration is the club’s 7th win in 10 games this season.
The Blackburn boys mentored by coach Ryan Kidd currently lead in the Youth Championship with 23 points to their credit so far, eight points better than second-seeded Manchester City FC U18.
Nsangou has been at Blackburn Rovers for over half a decade and is considered one of the club’s best prospects.
