Crown Football Round-Up (20/12/2019)
17-year-old Taylor Harwood-Bellis made his debut in the Champions League for Man City last week. Taylor was subbed on at the 80th minute as the team secured a 4-1 victory of Dinamo Zagreb. The week only got better for Taylor as he was called up to the first team again for their Carabao Cup quarter final against Oxford United. Taylor was named in the starting 11 and put in a brilliant 90 minute shift. Speaking in his post match interview alongside Raheem Sterling, Taylor said, It's always fantastic to play for City's first team - it's a dream come true."I just need to tale my chances when they come along and make sure I'm in the manager's mind." After the interview Taylor was awarded the Man of The Match award by fellow team-mate Raheem Sterling. Congratulations Taylor!
