Zack Steffen’s Manchester City senior debut finally arrived and the USMNT #1 picked up a 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the League Cup third round.
He certainly impressed with both his sweeper keeper game and blocking shots. Pep Guardiola took notice, saying
“Well the goal we conceded was almost unstoppable. We didn’t defend the shot properly. After, he saved on a counter attack,” Guardiola said. “He was calm. He was safe. He gave a good performance.”
Great feeling getting back out there after struggling for a while with knee injuries. A job well done and onto the next round @mancity pic.twitter.com/qkWZEyzb4K— Zack Steffen (@zackstef_23) September 24, 2020
Steffen should be getting more time this season as the ‘cup keeper’ playing in League Cup, FA Cup and maybe some Champions League action.
Future is bright behind the sticks.
