Scoring on Your Debut

It happens so often. A team trades a player and the ensuing game they score for that new team while they’ve been in a slump for months with the previous club. I guess it shouldn’t be so surprising. The said player is unhappy, doesn’t get a long with the coach, or he’s playing out of position, or he doesn’t necessarily gel with teammates. The rain is bothersome, Reyes said, had this complaint while playing for Arsenal, but that didn’t hinder is scoring ability.

In a week in which Manchester United have announced two new signings, we look back at ten of the best goals scored by United debutants. Featuring Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and more.


But almost in an uncanny way, a player will score on his debut, and not sure any goal, but more often than not, great goals.

The night before there must be amazing nerves and there are all kinds of debuts. The first time you step on the pitch as a professional, just after a trade, as I mentioned, or say your debut for your country.

Here are a few great debut goals for clubs, countries and new teams:
