See Alex Bruce score against Schmeichel

ALEX Bruce has never scored for Ipswich Town in nearly 50 appearances - but here's some footage of him beating one of the Premiership's safest keepers.

ALEX Bruce has never scored for Ipswich Town in nearly 50 appearances - but here's some footage of him beating one of the Premiership's safest keepers.

Before Blues fans gets too excited, though, this Match of the Day footage - showing Bruce celebrating a strike past Kasper Schmeichel - is 14 years old.

The two future players were captured having a kickabout against each other in an Old Trafford corridor while their fathers, Peter Schmeichel and Steve Bruce, were established Manchester United stars.

And while young Kasper, then six years old, appears to have improved his goalkeeping - he has not conceded a goal in the first three games of the Premiership season with Manchester City - Bruce, then nine, probably has not scored many goals since!
