Gabriel Agbonlahor Biography
An attacking player who is a product of the Aston Villa youth set-up.
Gabriel made a scoring debut for Villa against Everton in 2006, and since then he has become a fixture in the side, either on the wing or as a striker. His lightning speed and deadly accuracy in front of goal mean that he is one of the most popular players amongst Villa supporters, while he has also added greater physical strength to his game.
Proof of his all-round ability came in August 2009, when he scored a ‘perfect’ hat-trick against Manchester City, with left-and right-footed shots and a header. He also has the happy knack of scoring in big games - twice netting late winners in Villa’s local derby against Birmingham City.
He got off to a good start in 2011-12, scoring a fine goal in the first home game of the season against Blackburn and adding four more in the early part of the season. However, his goals supply dried up after Christmas and he netted just once in the second half of the season.
He made his international debut for England against Germany in November 2008 and has since won two further caps.
