Two games, two wins, and two impressive performances from Manchester City’s academy in the Dallas Cup. After their opening game thrashing of AC Milan, they met tough opposition in Mexican side Tigres, and once again two of their entries in the current Top 50 found the scoresheet.
A sloppy first half handed the Mexicans a 2-0 lead and Jim Cassell’s youngsters staring at a hard second half in unhelpful conditions. After an hour they pulled one back through Liberian striker Alex Nimely-Tchuimeni’s second of the tournament, and were level with just over ten minutes left from Greg Cunningham. That left right-back Kieran Trippier to score the winner courtesy of a wind-assisted free kick, and despite late pressure in response from Tigres, City held on for a very creditable win.
