Cole Palmer has found himself at his best since joining Chelsea. The former Manchester City footballer was sold to the Blues, due to playing time issues with coach Pep Guardiola. The decision of his making out of the club had a positive impact in his footballing career. As for the West London club he has been amazing in the 2023/24 season.

In the year of his breakthrough, he scored 27 goals in 48 appearances and assisted 15 times across all competitions for the Stamford Bridge side and that earned him a England national team call for the upcoming UEFA Euro 2024. He will definitely be in contention of starting the games in Germany as he is fighting for the starting spot for Gareth Southgate's team. 

The 22-year-old footballer on Monday scored his maiden goal for the three lions as he converted a penalty against Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the 60th minute of the game and broke the deadlock for a star studded English team. As he scored the goal at the St. James Park, video of his has been viral in the social media of wearing boots of two different nations. A fan with amazing vision spotted out the difference in the colour of the boots. 

Know from where Palmer's origin comes from?

Out of the two, one shoe proudly represents the Three Lions being born and raised in Manchester. The other is flag of Saint Kitts and Nevis. The fact was first notice after the footballer and his sister participated in a TikTok trend where the footballer's boots were clearly held in the air. The link comes when his grandfather Sterry Cole, headed to England in 1960 from the Carribean country. Previously Palmer's father, Jermaine, visited the Caribbean island where he spoke over his dad's cousins and how they support Chelsea for Palmer. 

Palmer way back told The Players Tribune about the impact his dad has have on his early football days and explained the reason why he has the St. Kitts flag on his boots. The youngster said, "He used to say, 'No point trying to shoot if you can’t keep hold of the ball in the first place.' We would do that every single day whatever the weather — and my dad’s family is from St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean."
