nycfcHere it is - Manchester City players taking on New York in the first advert promoting US sister-side New York FC.

Players Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Samir Nasri, Joe Hart, Gael Clichy, James Milner and Matija Nastasic kick a ball around well-known New York sites and neighbourhoods.
