    Don't quote me on that, he moves like Messi, that is all!

    This is going to bite me in the arse 10 years from now.

    I have only seen Highlight compilations of him but would I be right in saying he plays like a young Cristiano? Showboating style?

    Not for me. I think he is quite an intelligent player for his age. He more reminds me of David Silva but is more of a goal scorer, he also reminds me of a younger Scholes when he follows into the box.

    Imagine if there was no hyping up going on here and this was all actually true. He'd have made his debut a couple of years ago

    Once again just comparing their playing styles doesn't mean that the player will be as successful as the player to whom he's being compared too.

    Exactly! I see Harrop a bit like Iniesta when he's on the left but it doesn't mean I'm saying he'll be as good as him.

    Not sure why you assume noone else here knows who a shit mumble rapper is.

    As for Angel excited if he does play but Jose had been saying he is going to play the kids for weeks now and we still end up with Rooney,Smalling and Jones etc

    Kid looks talented enough. Hope he gets enough game time in the future to ensure he progresses well.

    Camacho was 1 high prospect of 2000 generation in Sporting academy who was signed by City and only in the last months I watched him play for Portugal under 17 team who was eliminated by the Spanish team who won this tournament, after Umaro he looked the second best, even if he is now at Liverpool.

    My main worry when they are in England is not at this age, it is when they make the transition to professional football, related with the lack of B teams in my opinion, anyway if Gomes is on the same level as Sancho or similar they can make it at the high level, doesn't mean they will make it at City or United.

    In the English system players tend to go out on loan though this can be problematic as often they get left out of the side with managers opting for 'experience' and when the inevitable managerial sacking happens they can be completely frozen out by the new man. I think Gomes will be good enough to get a lot of minutes from a young age, however.

    As an aside, I was really unimpressed with Sancho in the Euro final, he was trying to take on the whole opposition side every time he got the ball and didn't help his fullback out at all. It was a very immature performance. I think Spain deserved the win in the end but if not for a terrible goalkeeping howler from the last touch of the game England would have won.

    That's a bit of an exaggeration isn't it seeing as he's only 16 now. But given jose is giving him his debut at 16 and with whom he's being compared with, we are well within our rights to assume we've got a player capable of exceeding the records Messi and Ronaldo have set, no? ;)

    If he moved like Messi and played like Ronnie I'd have him on the pitch the second he could walk.

    Now you see what I mean when I said he's not yet ready for 1st team football at City. He will be roasted by the manager if he plays like that against any pro side.

    Pep wouldn't select him anyway.

    The Spanish right winger, Torres was it, was giving our fullback a right doing over and Sancho was nowhere to be seen. Even at the end when we were defending when he was getting back a bit it was lackluster stuff.

    The right back from City Latibeaudiere was really poor too.

    I thought Guehi was the best England player on the night.

    Barlow showed a lot of character to take and score England's first penalty.

    Spain's movement as a team was the most impressive thing on display overall.

    As far as I remember, somebody who is Portuguese or has some contact with Gomes on this forum(?) stated that Gomes and Nani are close family friends and just adopt the term cousin as endearment. I can't remember how true that was, so he might actually be related.

    Yeah I'm sure it's something not too far from the truth that.

    It's fair to say he may have taken up the "Anderson role" in the squad.

    I guess every team need them.

    I can see Mourinho starting him. It's a total dead rubber and I think Mourinho would love to have the credit of debuting the youngest lad since Edwards.

    He has only come back from injury. Starting him seems far fetched to me.

    No he's not, the press think he is but this has been debunked by multiple people who know a lot more about the academy than the press.

    They're free use. That way, they generally don't get flagged for takedown due to dmca requests. There are channels which are dedicated to those.

    This will narrow down the types of music available. Why not classical then? I am sure DMCA wont apply to them.

    You're wrong. He is Nanis cousin

    His father is called Nélson Gil de Almeida Gomes. As you can see on his wiki, he played for Salford so no doubt that's his father. He also has Almeida in his name which Nani also has.

    Angel Gomes has posted images like this too:
