'Our talent is unmatched': Some Man City fans are stunned over 'amazing' stat from 2018 signing
It has been an international campaign to remember for Manchester City and Republic of Ireland keeper Gavin Bazunu.
The Dublin-born prospect started all three FIFA World Cup qualifiers for Stephen Kenny’s side this international break. Although Ireland failed to win a single game, Bazunu firmly established himself as a star in the making.
The teenager keeper first saved a penalty against Cristiano Ronaldo in Ireland’s heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Portugal. Before Bazunu stole the show for the Boys in Green against Serbia, with the shot-stopper making an astonishing ten saves.
In total, the City prospect saved 18 of the 22 shots Bazunu faced for Ireland. Although the teenager conceded four goals over three games, the 2018 signing from Shamrock Rovers has firmly established himself as his country’s new number one.
Indeed, this stat, in particular, caused much fanfare and joy for both City and Ireland fans, with Bazunu now being hailed a star for the future. The keeper is currently spending the season on loan with League One side.
Here’s what some City fans had to say about Bazunu and his incredible form during this international break on Twitter…
