Tottenham Hotspur’s Under-23s side secured a vital victory in the Premier League 2 on Monday night, beating Swansea City 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium.
Promising youngster Troy Parrott scored both goals for Spurs including a stunning free-kick.
The Ireland youth international has been tipped as a future first-team player at Tottenham and will have done his chances of breaking into the senior squad no harm with his performance on Monday.
Parrott turns 18 this summer, so it may be some time until we see him alongside the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
His superb strike was caught on camera by Twitter user @TheTrevorDurham. Watch below.

Most top players have already made several appearances for their club at the age of 17, and when 18 are regulars- I am not saying that Parrott is or will be a top player, but there is every chance that he will be.
The only way to find out, is by giving him some game time in the 1st team right now.
