Tottenham fans praise their “generational” 19-year-old after international display

Troy Parrott starred for the Republic of Ireland yesterday on the international stage – and some Tottenham fans on Twitter were left excited by his performance. 

Spurs supporters watched their teenager shine on Thursday for the Republic of Ireland.

The 19-year-old scored two goals in the international friendly against Andorra, and they were the goals that turned the game around in the 4-1 win.

He’s a rising talent that Spurs fans hope he can be a future first teamer, and he should be on cloud nine after his display for Ireland. 

Parrott has shown he is a natural finisher. However, his all-round game needs lots of work, something usual at his age, and he’s not ready yet to play in the first team of the north London club.

He had spells out on loan this season with Millwall and Ipswich Town, but it never really happened for him.

The obvious comparison to make is with Spurs talisman Harry Kane, who was in a similar situation when loan spells didn’t work out for him. However, he’s now England captain and tipped to break the all-time Premier League goalscoring record. Fortunately, Parrott has time on his side.

Tottenham need to be patient for Troy Parrott

If he’s good enough, Parrott will end up in the Spurs first team eventually.

Intriguingly, he’s made four senior appearances for the north London giants. 

He’s at a stage though where he needs to be playing regularly, and finding the right destination for him on loan should be a priority this summer.

Ideally, he can drop down a division or two and prove he can score goals at senior level because that will lift his confidence even further. It’s encouraging though that he’s representing his country at senior level already.
