Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has called up Ghanaian teenager, Kwaku Oduroh, to his squad ahead of his side’s Champions League first-leg match against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
18-year-old Oduroh, who is the captain of City’s under-18 side, was promoted to the first team after a string of impressive performances for the youth side.
Oduroh is a right-back who can also play at left-back and centre-back. He has played 20 times for the U-18s this season and created three goals.
His teammate from the youth side, Alpha Dionkou, was also called up to the side.
The pair join the likes of Phil Foden and Eric Garcia who were named on City’s ‘B List’ squad, which consists of players born on or after January 1, 1999.
They are eligible to be included in the list if they have been eligible to play for the club for two years since their 15th birthday.
The players will find out later today if they will make Pep’s final list for the game against PSG.
