'Outstanding' Carter-Vickers makes most of second chance

Cameron Carter-Vickers, 19, needed all of 33 minutes to leave an impression on fans at new English League Championship club Sheffield United, scoring to give the Blades a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers, their fourth in a row for third place. His performance also left a big impression on manager Chris Wilder.

Carter-Vickers, 19, scored on the second attempt after his first shot with his left foot off a corner kick was blocked. He blasted the second shot with his right foot and found the back net.

He almost scored a second goal late in the first half but was denied by Bolton keeper Ben Alnwick. Sheffield United then held on for its fifth win in seven games, good enough for third place in the 24-team league.

The game was the first league game CCV has ever played as a first-team player in England. He joined the Blades on a season-long loan from Tottenham. He suited up for 16 EPL games for Spurs last season without ever getting into a game. His lone first-team appearances for Spurs came in the FA Cup and League Cup.

Wilder to the Daily Star: “I spoke to Cameron beforehand and told him that, with all due respect to under-23’s football, he was going to be in a man’s game out there. And that’s what it was, a proper man’s game, but he came through with flying colors. Cameron showed what he’s all about out there. He proved he’s ready for a physical challenge and I thought he was outstanding. To get the goal was brilliant but it was the other parts of his performance, the way he stood up to some really powerful players, that probably impressed me the most.”
