Ireland U-21 international Jack Byrne became Dutch side Cambuur's youngest ever goal scorer in Eredivisie.

The midfielder, who is on loan from Manchester City, scored in the 4-1 victory at Excelsior yesterday.

Byrne put in a man-of-the-match display in which he racked up a 94.6pc pass completion - the highest of any player on the pitch.

The Dubliner thought he had scored his first goal for Cambuur last week from a free-kick but it was eventually ruled as an own goal.
