A strong Leeds United U23 side beat Millwall in the 96th minute thanks to a free-kick from highly-rated youngster Mateusz Bogusz.
Marcelo Bielsa has been known to make many first-team players who didn’t feature in the Championship play for Carlos Corberan’s side when available and that was the case again, with Helder Costa, Eddie Nketiah, Jack Clarke and Ezgjan Alioski among a host of big-names in the squad.
Despite that, the Yorkshire side gave up a two-goal lead and seemed set to draw 2-2 until Bogusz stepped up late on.

The club shared a video of the Polish midfielder’s winner and whilst he got a bit of luck with his free-kick deflecting in, the 17-year-old was said to have impressed once again and deserved his goal.
And, it’s fair to say the fans are delighted with how the teenager is progressing and they were quick to praise him after his goal on Twitter…
Great strike from the 17 year old yes lol 17 scary isn’t it lol
