Joel Asoro draws in­spi­ra­tion from Ge­orge Honey­man and Lyn­den Gooch who have pro­gressed through the ranks at Sun­der­land. The trio all played to­gether at Un­der-23 level, but Honey­man and Gooch have es­tab­lished them­selves in the first team this sea­son. Eigh­teen-year-old Asoro, with seven first- team ap­pear­ances un­der his belt this sea­son, said: “To see play­ers like Ge­orge Honey­man and Lyn­den Gooch step up, it can help you a lot. “I’ve been train­ing with them and play­ing along­side them at Un­der-23 level and they have now taken the next step into the first team. “You never know, maybe I can do it now too.”
