Formal striker raves about ‘genius’ Nottingham Forest star after Burnley draw

Callum Hudson-Odoi of Nottingham Forest was praised by Don Goodman after his strike gave the Reds a point against Burnley. The young man made his debut, and boy did he do it in style.

Last night, the pundit served as a co-commentator for Sky Sports. Goodman was complimentary of Forest and expressed admiration for Hudson-Odoi’s goal.

For the Reds, this was by no means a good performance. It was dogged in patches and belied a team that hadn’t really welcomed the 16-day break between their last game.

Still, the new signings are going to need some time to settle into their new surroundings. There were some positives from last night but Forest didn’t really deserve to win this game.

Goodman was impressed with the moment of magic that helped the Reds claim all three points. He raved about Forest star Hudson-Odoi live on Sky Sports after his wonderful debut goal.

What a strike it is, the man said to Sky Sports. It really appeared out of nowhere. Burnley was in charge. It demonstrates how just one act of pure genius is necessary at this level.

All eyes are on Callum Hudson-Odoi. He accomplished it exactly as he had imagined it in his dreams. Greetings from the City Ground.

Hudson-Odoi, the star of Forest, is lauded by Goodman
After Brennan Johnson left, the Reds needed to make sure they had enough supplies. The fact that Hudson-Odoi only cost £3 million suggests that they may have struck it lucky.

It’s pleasant to hear Goodman laud him, and he is entirely accurate. The achievement of this goal was exactly as Hudson-Odoi had envisioned it in his dreams, and he is now itching for more.

It’s difficult to fathom how Forest was able to get him this summer for such a low price at only 22 years old. Yes, the player has a little bit lost his path, but Chelsea may have stumbled a little bit here.

Hudson-Odoi just has one game left at Forest. But his achievement will live long in the memory, and maybe the gifted youngster has more to offer.
