Under-17s into Yokohama Cup final

City's youngsters will play Zenit St Petersburg in the final of the Yokohama Cup.

The Academy have been out in Germany for the tournament since last Friday (May 18th).

They kicked it off with a 3-1 win against FC Midtyilland, thanks to goals from Vince Harper, Marcus Day and man of the match Antoine Semenyo.

James Burford netted in matchday two, as City held FL Bouchum to a 1-1 draw, before a 1-0 loss to Heidenheim followed.

But City secured their semi-final place against Eintracht Frankfurt, which the sides drew 1-1. It was then a test of nerves for the penalty shoot-out but the young Robins kept their cool to win 4-2.

And Bradley Webb confidently tucked home the winning spot-kick, as you can watch in the tweet above.

The Academy face Zenit St Petersburg in the Yokohama Cup final at 4pm today (Monday, May 21st, 3pm UK kick-off).
