Spurs fans react to Maksim Paskotsi display against Wales
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Maksim Paskotsi after the defender helped Estonia keep a clean sheet against Wales on Wednesday.
Estonia have their first point of qualifying. And in the process, they have dented Rob Page’s side’s hopes of rivalling Belgium for top spot in their group.
The 18-year-old was a colossus at the back for the visitors in Cardiff.
As shown by Whoscored, he made one tackle, three clearances and won two aerial duels.
But what was particularly impressive about his display was the number of runs he went on.
In fact, Whoscored shows that his four successful dribbles leaves him only behind Leeds United winger Dan James during the goalless draw.
Unfortunately, he had to be taken off for the final minutes in the Welsh capital. It appeared that he had a slight knock, so those at Hotspur Way will be hoping that it is not a serious problem.
For plenty of Spurs fans, it seems to be a matter of time before he is more of a prominent member of Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-team squad.
He featured in the Europa Conference League. But he is still awaiting the chance to make his full debut for Tottenham.
‘I’ve seen enough’: Spurs fans laud Paskotsi after Estonia draw
The Spurs supporters have incredibly high hopes. One Estonian follower of the club even suggested that he was potentially the country’s best ever prospect.
Clearly, many are extremely hopeful that he can, one day, be a star for both club and country.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Spurs fans made of his display…
Hate to say it but Bale and Wales’ chances of making the World Cup look extremely dim after tonight’s failure to beat Estonia.
Young Paskotsi was a giant in defense, all 18 years of him. A star in the making.

He literally is generational (for us) – probably the best ever talent to come out of Estonia
