Tottenham goalscorer Kazaiah Sterling was at school earlier in the day, reveals boss

Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Youth Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Youth Cup semi final first leg, with goals from Josh Onomah and Kazaiah Sterling scoring the goals.

The game at White Hart Lane was watched by head coach Mauricio Pochettino in the stands, along with several first team players.

England youth international Kazaiah Sterling came off the substitute to score his goal, and under-18s manager Kieran McKenna explained there was little chance of him getting ahead of himself.

He told ITV4: "Young Kazaiah Sterling is still an under-16. He was at school today.

"So for him to come in after school and score a really important goal with a really good finish, I'm delighted for him.

"He'll be back to school tomorrow morning as well."

Sterling recently impressed with England's under-17 side last month, scoring a goal in a game against Portugal, which he told the FA's website was one of the proudest moments of his life.

Now scoring on national television for his club's youth team will be up there too, and he can expect more attention than ever when he heads into school on Friday morning.

Chelsea are the current holders of the competition and the second leg will be played on Wednesday March 18th at Stamford Bridge.
