On Friday, Swindon Town, once of the Premier League but these days of the fourth division, hosted Manchester City in a minnows versus giants FA Cup third round tie at the County Ground. And while Swindon did not manage to score an historic upset, losing 4-1 in the end, their striker Harry McKirdy did manage to make a few headlines anyway.
The self-confessed Chelsea fan and apparent wind-up merchant not only managed to grab the home side’s only goal of the game — his 11th goal in all competitions for the season — he showed off his true colors with a banterrific boot bag, featuring Kai Havertz’s goal against City in last season’s Champions League final.
Pretty sweet, I must say.
