Fans go wild for England Under-21 star Will Hughes during Germany semi-final

Derby County star Will Hughes' dribbling abilities get everyone buzzing during their European Under-21 semi-final

People who have watched the Championship over the past few years will know one thing.

New Watford signing Will Hughes, who was bought last week from Derby County, is a top, top talent.

OK, perhaps not the £30million next Xavi or Iniesta he was once touted as being when he broke onto the scene as a 16-year-old six years ago, but he’s undoubtedly got class.


And the blonde-haired dribbling wizard was at it again during England’s European Under-21 semi-final against Germany.

His close control, vision and range of passing was widely praised by fans on Twitter, while his assist for Tammy Abraham’s second half goal heavily involved Hughes, who dribbled past two German players before slipping in the Chelsea youngster.

Indeed, the £8million Watford paid for the former Ram is looking like an absolute snip.
