VIDEO: James Wilson nets stunning strike for Manchester United reserves

United OT Champions 19

James Wilson has reminded Manchester United's staff and fans of his immense talent.

James Wilson can consider himself unlucky to have missed out on the club's pre-season tour, but has issued a timely reminder of his outstanding potential.

The teenage striker scored an impressive solo goal against Manchester City on Thursday evening, as part of a game-winning performance in the Manchester Senior Cup Final.

United won 4-1, with Wilson scoring all four goals, while Jordy Hiwula netted for City.

Wilson was called into the United first team by Ryan Giggs at the end of last season, and scored twice in a win over Hull City.

United play their final pre-season game against Valencia next week, and Wilson may have just propelled himself into Louis van Gaal's thinking ahead of the new season.

Will Wilson get his first team shot?
