Taylor Foran, Arsenal youth footballer, was on the penultimate step of the promotion dreamed of by every youth squad. After going through all the categories, his opportunity came with the second team.
Was cited east central of 17 years for the match that the Under 23 ‘gunners’ would play last Saturday against their peers from Manchester City.
And Foran had his long-awaited debut, but it was not exactly the dream. The starting goalkeeper was expelled and, having no substitute on the bench, the coach pulled the defender, as reported by ‘AS’.
Thus, the central played his first minutes with the subsidiary as goalkeeper. At 25 minutes, the Gunners won 0-1 but had to face the rest of the match with ten and with one player in goal.
At the end, City thrashed (4-1) to Arsenal in a debut that Taylor Foran will surely never forget.
