Manchester United fans got very excited when a young Chris Eagles scored this goal – his first and only – for the Red Devils in a 4-2 win over Everton in 2008.
Eagles had graduated from the same youth setup that produced David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville.
However, he failed to replicate the success of those illustrious predecessors.
Eagles never represented England, not even at Under-21 level, and the 2007 Community Shield was the only major trophy he got his hands on during eight years at Old Trafford.
He was loaned out to Watford, Sheffield Wednesday and N.E.C. during his time on United’s books. His biggest success came with the Hornets, winning the Championship playoffs in 2006.
Since leaving United permanently, Eagles enjoyed lengthy stints at Burnley and Bolton Wanderers, before shorter spells at Blackpool and Charlton Athletic.
Charlton released Eagles at the end of last season. He has been unemployed ever since, but he could be closing in on a return to the game.
According to the Daily Mail, League One outfit Coventry City are giving 29-year-old Eagles a trial.
Coventry currently sit fifth in the League One table, three points behind leaders Walsall.
