Another American player could be set to feature in a European competition this season. Tottenham Hotspur have added United States youth international Cameron Carter-Vickers to their Europa League roster for the remainder of their season.
The 18-year-old centerback will be the main backup behind Toby Alderweireld now that Jan Vertonghen has been sidelined with a long term injury. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has said in the past that the club can rely on Carter-Vickers to fill in if needed. He even went as far as not buying a replacement centerback in the January transfer window because of how much the club trusts the youngster.
CCV was given the No. 38 shirt upon his placement on the Europa League roster.
Unfortunately, Carter-Vickers has not been needed yet and hasn't made his first team debut as of yet. With the fixtures about to start piling up and him being added to the Europa League roster, perhaps his time is about to come. It's not too shabby for an 18-year-old kid to be handed the responsibility of being added to the roster for a European competition.
He joins Christian Pulisic and Ethan Horvath as the only other remaining American players in the competition.
