U.S. Youth Charlie Kelman Scores Crazy Goal in English League One Debut (VIDEO)

Former Dallas FC youth academy player and current U18 U.S. national call-up Charlie Kelman made quite an impression in his League One debut on Saturday.

Playing for third tier English club Southend United, Kelman rocketed a shot from his own half past Plymouth Argyle’s keeper Kyle Letheren. Poorly played by Letheren, yes, but an impressive strike from Kelman nonetheless.

Despite the goal, Southend lost to relegation-candidate Plymouth 2-3.

About Charlie Kelman

Born in Essex outside of London, 17 year-old Charlie Kelman is a rising player for the U18 U.S. national squad. Kelman, whose father is American, spent six years growing up in the U.S. Living in Texas, he played for Dallas FC’s Development Academy.

Because Kelman was born in England but has an American father, he’s eligible for both England and America’s national teams.

Kelman currently plays for Southend United, an English third-tier team in League One. For you Netflix bingers, that would be the same league that Sunderland was relegated to this season.
