Tottenham Hotspur’s under-18 side defeated their Manchester City counterparts in fine style this weekend, running out 4-1 winners.
Spurs have many promising young players on their books, and the latest to steal the headlines was 16-year-old Kazaiah Sterling, who netted a brace on Saturday and was captured doing so in pictures published by the club's official Twitter account.
The teenage striker opened the scoring with just 10 minutes on the clock, and he would go on to score his second and Tottenham’s third in the second half.
By then Spurs’ youngsters were already 2-0 up, after Anton Walkes had doubled the advantage five minutes before the interval.
It was then left to Ryan Loft to score the fourth, before Will Patching scored a consolation strike for City.
Sterling has been making waves at White Hart Lane for quite some time, and he recently made headlines after scoring against Chelsea in the FA Youth Cup semi-final, although the Blues ultimately came out on top on aggregate.
He also netted on his debut for England’s under-17s earlier this season and at this rate he could be knocking on Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino’s door in the next couple of years.
As with all young players, he will need to become consistent, but scoring twice against the young City side is another step in the right direction.
