'Jeeeeez', 'the future': Some Spurs fans blown away by 20-year-old in training
Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to praise Tottenham goalkeeper Josh Oluwayemi for his efforts in training on Friday.
The north Londoners are currently preparing for Saturday’s return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace.
And while Hugo Lloris is number one for Spurs and Pierluigi Gollini is his deputy, Oluwayemi pulled off arguably the save of the session.
The 20-year-old kept out a point-blank header before getting down and smothering the ball.
Tottenham’s Twitter account was eager to show Oluwayemi’s save off to the fanbase:
And Spurs fans were impressed:

Oluwayemi has risen through the Spurs academy ranks after joining in 2017 and is currently in the Under-23s.
He has made three Premier League 2 appearances this season and has also featured in the EFL Trophy.
Oluwayemi also made the bench for Nigeria in their 4-0 friendly defeat to Mexico in July this year.
