On The Eve of Greatness?

November 22, 2011 at 4:13 pm Leave a comment

Stoke City’s fifth choice goalkeeper Dale Eve had a rapid rise to the top in the past week, when he made his World Cup debut.

Eve, who is only sixteen years old was called on as a substitute in the second half of his native Bermuda’s 2-1 win over Barbados, making him one of the youngest players at any stage of the tournament.

The 6ft 4in goalkeeper joined Stoke from derby last summer having originally moved to England from Dandy Town Warriors.

His international debut however came under strange circumstances. Bermuda’s first choice custodian, Freddy Hall was playing for Northampton Town’s FA Cup defeat at Luton. Second choice Tahj Bell was suspended after “relieving himself in a corner of the National Stadium while warming up as a substitute” before a recent international. Third Choice Nahki Wells who plays for Bradford City opted to play for his club in the FA Cup rather than his country in a World Cup qualifier. He did however fly over for the second leg, and actually scored the winner in a 2-1 victory.

Is Dale on the Eve of greatness? Time will tell.
