Nathan Redmond was in the Birmingham FC Football Academy when he was victorious on Skill School. As you can see in the video, Redmond was a prodigious talent. It was of little surprise when he made his debut for Birmingham aged just 16.
After impressing in the Championship, Redmond got his just desserts, sealing a move to Premier League side Norwich in 2013.

The pinnacle of Redmond’s career occurred in 2017 when he achieved his first England cap.
