Video: Tottenham Hotspur talent Cameron Carter-Vickers scores first international goal

USA Supporters

The young Spurs defender scored for the USA under-20 side yesterday.

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel is currently not at the club. Indeed, Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling is not the only Premier League player in Jamaica this weekend. Although while Raheem chills on the beach, Friedel is working.

He has gone to help coach the US under-20 team at the CONCACAF Youth Cup. The third-choice Tottenham stopper's former international team-mate Tab Ramos is the current manager of the side and Friedel will help out for the games on the 9th of January against Guatemala and Panama on the 11th, before returning to London to continue playing duties.

But he is not the only Tottenham player heading out to the competition - although the other is young enough to be his son.

17-year-old Cameron Carter-Vickers has had the choice of playing international football for both the USA and England, representing both at youth level.

But the young defender looks set to commit his long-term international future to the US and Friedel is pleased to have him on board, telling the official Spurs website that he was 'delighted' the teenager was joining up with the fold.

And he had an excellent game against Guatemala, even scoring a goal. He nodded home from a corner to give the US a lead and the USA looked set to claim an expected victory.

Unfortunately for Friedel and Carter-Vickers Guatemala youngster Andy Ruiz scored an absolute wondergoal in the 90th minute.

But Carter-Vickers certainly looks a talent.
