Watch: Kevin De Bruyne Surprises Ireland U21 International With Request For His Shirt

Wolverhampton Wanderers did what no other side has been able to do when facing Manchester City this season as they kept Guardiola's men scoreless over 120 minutes in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

Although they eventually lost on penalties, Wolves - who currently sit two points clear at the top of the Championship - continued their excellent start to the season with an impressive defensive performance, and we even had an Irishman on the pitch as highly-rated youngster Connor Ronan started the match before being withdrawn after 73 minutes.

An attacking midfielder, Ronan is someone who has been tipped for big things at Wolves and with the Irish underage setup having recently made his U21 debut for Noel King's side, and he seemed to catch the attention of an opponent at the Etihad Stadium.

Man City's 'Tunnel Cam' captured a great moment as Kevin De Bruyne took off his shirt following the game, spotted Ronan, and offered a swap, much to the surprise of Ronan who looked like he wasn't sure whether or not the Belgian wanted to swap shirts or rob his phone.

That's one to hang on to.

On current form, there are few midfielders in the world playing better stuff than De Bruyne so for him to ask for Ronan's shirt back in return would have been a big boost for the 19-year-old.
