Spurs under 19’s versus Borussia Dortmund: (match preview)
Date: Wednesday 13 September kick off: 15:00pm
Venue: Hotspur Way
Live: BT Sport 1.
On the same day as our seniors take on German club Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in the champions league, our under 19’s will also face the famous German side in the UEFA youth league, a competition which mirrors the group were in for the champions league. The brilliant John McDermott will be leading our under 19’s out for this seasons campaign, as our talented youngsters get the opportunity to go head to head with some of the finest academies in world football. After our slightly disappointing debut campaign in the competition last season, which saw our lads finish in bottom place of our group with four points, this ever improving side will be hoping to improve on that, in a much tougher group. The opposition who are renowned for their academy, have some incredibly talented players included in their squad. Highly rated Swedish striker Alexander Isak and young Dane Jacob Bruun Larsen are just two players to watch out for, from a squad brimming with talent. However, fans hoping to see one of England’s most talented youngsters (and reported Spurs transfer target over the summer) Jadon Sancho, will be left dissapointed. As the former Man City player hasn’t been listed in either of Dortmund’s squads for the forthcoming competition. Our squad, which contains notable talents such as Marcus Edwards, Samuel Shashoua and Kazaiah Sterling, all have the ability to test Dortmund for what proves to be a tough but intriguing game.
Unfortunately I will be unable to report on tomorrows game, but for Spurs fans wishing to watch the game, can do so, it’s being shown live on BT Sport 1. I wish our lads the very best of luck for tomorrows big game. COYS
My predicted lineup:(4-2-3-1) De Bie, Eyoma, Tanganga(c), Dinzeyi, Brown, Duncan, Skipp, S.Shashoua, Roles, Edwards, Sterling.
One to watch: Young Swedish striker Alexander Isak, who is one of the hottest prospects in the game.
