May not be as important as the Premier League, but the FA Cup still possesses a special attraction. After winning against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool’s next match will be a match against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup Fourth Round.
Football fans all know that the FA Cup is the oldest football tournament in football. But today its credibility has dropped, especially when on a scale comparable to the planet’s most attractive league – the Premier League.
Even so, former Manchester City defender Micah Richards believes the hundred-year-old tournament has not lost “the magic”. And goals of young talent Curtis Jones against Everton proved that.
I won the Premier League and played for England, but it seems people always remember me the most when I swear live on BBC One on Sunday afternoon, “the 31-year-old defender wrote on the BBC.
“That’s the power of the FA Cup, and I don’t believe this famous long-term tournament has lost all its magic – just ask Liverpool’s Curtis Jones.”
Indeed, after the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round, it looks like Curtis Jones has everything to be the future Liverpool superstar. Up to now, the 18-year-old attacking player has played 5 matches for the first team of the Red Brigade. There is 1 assist and 1 goal is extremely beautiful and also very important.
Premier League legend was sharing the same view with Micah Richards. Alan Shearer also thinks that Jones will have a bright future with the intense desire that this guy has shown.
He will never have the opportunity to show his talent to Liverpool in the Premier League or Champions League. But he had the opportunity in the FA Cup when he was only 18 years old, and certainly made a name for himself.
Yes, some teams use the FA Cup to rotate the squad and take a break. But that also means you will have the opportunity to see some new faces. It’s a perfect platform for young players like Jones to help people see what they can do.
