3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
And now he's about to get his opportunity as Port Vale will play against the current 2x Premier League champions on January 4, for the third round of the FA Cup.
June 7, 2019. Roughly 6 months ago, 34-year-old striker Tom Pope made a tweet about John Stones and his performances for the Three Lions.
Just watched the highlights of the England game! I know I’m a league 2 player, I know he plays for England, I know he’s on £150k a week, I know he’s a million times better player than me but I’d love to play against John Stones every week! I’d get 40 a season! #soft #weakaspiss— Tom Pope (@Tom_Pope9) 7 de junho de 2019
Port Vale's striker will have his opportunity against Pep Guardiola's team and maybe John Stones, as the team will meet the Cityzens in the third round of the FA Cup next month.
At Port Vale since July 2017, Tom Pope has just 3 goals in the English League 2, and the team is currently in 9th, 6 points behind the top-3 positions which give them the promotion.
Their campaign at the FA Cup has been good, as the team already overcame 2 rounds: two away wins against MK Dons and Cheltenham, with 4 goals scored and just 1 conceded. Tom Pope has been one of their major weapons in the competition, responsible for 3 goals of the 4 goals scored.
6 months later and after knowing he will face Manchester City, Tom Pope addressed John Stones again on Twitter. This time was different...
This tweet was 6 months ago and you’ve all managed to dig it up ?????????????????????? in them 6 months he’s improved dramatically and I think he’s the best centre half in the world ???????? https://t.co/i64I9jCLKt— Tom Pope (@Tom_Pope9) 2 de dezembro de 2019
Ironic? It will be fun January 4 at Etihad Stadium.
