What Was Ryan Thinking?
Up at St James Park, Ryan Sessegnon showed exactly why he`s coveted by so many top clubs.
The 16-year-old gave a performance that belied his years and scored two goals with all the coolness of a seasoned professional.
However, yesterday a golden opportunity was missed to make the game the most memorable of young Ryan`s career.
Having bagged a brace of goals already, it was Ryan that was fouled by Paul Dummett in the last few minutes of the game, for the spot-kick.
Ryan picked the ball up and strode towards the penalty spot.
It looked as if the youngster was going to take the spot-kick and claim a hat-trick.
However, Tim Ream pulled rank on the teenager and took the responsibility for the kick, only to drive it wide of the post.
I wonder what young Ryan thought as the ball sailed the wrong side of the post!
