Tottenham’s youth team beat Manchester City in a Premier League 2 fixture on Friday night – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter were impressed by the performance of Troy Parrott.
Spurs’ Under-23s side beat Manchester City 3-1 at home and the senior teams clash on Saturday evening at the Etihad Stadium.
Parrott scored two goals for Spurs and the first was a stunning left-footed finish into the top corner, before he also managed to net calmly from the penalty spot.
The 17-year-old was called up to the senior Republic of Ireland squad on Friday and celebrated with a brace at club level.
He impressed with the first-team during pre-season and will surely be in the thoughts of senior boss Mauricio Pochettino.
With Fernando Llorente exiting this summer, there is a lack of genuine options in reserve to talisman striker Harry Kane.
A selection of Spurs supporters on social media were delighted with the latest display of Parrott and are convinced that a first-team call-up is just around the corner.
The centre-forward is continuing to build up his reputation at youth level and needs to try seize any opportunity if a first-team chance comes around in the cup.
Here are some Spurs fans on Parrott:
He’s got a very exciting future ahead of him, wouldn’t like to see him anywhere else rather than at Spurs, top quality finish🔥👌🏻

Great finish on his weaker foot. This guy needs to get some first team action.

He has the perfect mentor. They have some similarities in the way they play. He’s looks to (one day) be a better dribbler – but not as much holdup play. Still looks physical.

Great strike. Can’t wait to him in the first team on a regular basis.
