VIDEO: James Ward-Prowse with a fantastic free kick goal

Southampton has really started the day right. Before most fans woke up for the early game today, it was made known that Southampton got a great bargain in getting Charlie Austin from QPR for only £4 million.

And now, in their game against West Bromich Albion, James Ward-Prowse scored a beauty of a free kick to give the Saints the 1-0 lead. Take a look at this fantastic strike by Ward-Prowse for the first goal of the game that came with only five minutes played.

Fantastic strike by the young Englishman.
