Tottenham Hotspur’s Cameron Carter-Vickers impressed for Swansea City on Friday.
On-loan Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers impressed for Swansea City on Friday.
The USA international wound up on the losing side as Championship leaders Norwich City recorded a 1-0 victory, but the Spurs centre-back acquitted himself very well.
The pre-match centered around whether the Tottenham youngster could cope with Teemu Pukki, who has netted 24 times in England’s second tier this season.
But the well-built Carter-Vickers, resembling a Rugby Union prop, handled himself well against the red-hot Canaries hitman.
Here’s how Swansea fans reacted to his display:
Seriously, with his recent run of form, how is CCV not a clear pick behind Miazga, if not starting ahead.— USAFanBoi (@boi_usa) March 8, 2019
Would include Nagbe in the 23 as LW/Holmes backup, although he’s not exactly earning it with his current play with ATL.
Fair to say I think most of us were expecting a higher scoreline, they average 3 goals a game so well done MVDH and CCV, superb!— TheSwanseaJacks ⚫⚪ (@TheSwanseaJacks) March 8, 2019
It must be noted also that CCV and VdH did a wonderful job nullifying the threat that is Pukki— Samantha (@samevs94) March 8, 2019
Carter-Vickers having a stormer, am I surprised?— Rhino (@RhinoVickers) March 8, 2019
He has. I’m just pointing out it’s weird how he heads like Ash Wills— G (@ghs_1986) March 8, 2019
The 21-year-old hasn’t made a competitive appearance for Tottenham since January of 2017. And being honest, it seems unlikely that he has much future in North London at this moment in time.
Carter-Vickers, whose contract with the Lilywhites expires in 2021, is only 18 months younger than Spurs regular Davinson Sanchez, and 13 days older than Juan Foyth.
Both are lightyears ahead of the Southend-born stalwart, who has seven caps for the United States national side.
