You Need To See This Incredible John McGinn Goal For Aston Villa

What about this for a hit from John McGinn.

Aston Villa have had a poor start to the season, having won only three of their opening eight games prior to today's meeting with Sheffield Wednesday.

With the team floundering, manager Steve Bruce has come under immense pressure from some sections of the club's support. They were only one game away from securing promotion to the Premier League last term, but that seems a distant memory to many at the moment.

Today's result has not improved their outlook, falling 2-1 at home to their Yorkshire visitors. Wednesday took the lead through Marco Matias in the 49th minute, but were soon pegged back to level terms.

An absolute thunderbolt of a strike from summer signing John McGinn got his side back into the game.

Sit back and enjoy this one.

What a belter.

The technique on display here is absolutely incredible. With the ball dropping to him from a height, he just seems to stroke into the top corner, leaving the goalkeeper with absolutely no chance.

It looks even better from this angle.

McGinn joined Villa from Hibernian for a fee of around £2.5million, and he has been one of the bright spots in a difficult period for the club.

Prior to today he had already provided two assists in seven Championship appearances. He was still a Hibernian player at the start of the season, contributing two goals and two assists in four games before his move down south.

McGinn very nearly moved to Celtic in July, with the Glasgow club having three bids rejected for the player.

Steve Bruce will be hoping that the Scot can now push his performances to another level, and contribute to a change in fortunes for his team. Their will travel to Bristol City next Friday evening, and a poor result in that game could spell the end of his time at Villa Park.
