Troy Parrott’s dream week with Republic of Ireland’s Under-21s has continued after he scored twice in their 3-1 victory over Sweden.

The 17-year-old, who is sending out a message to Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, marked his Ireland Under-21 debut on Friday by scoring the only goal of the game in their 1-0 victory over Armenia in Dublin to maintain their 100 percent record in qualifying.

Despite that winning goal, Parrott found himself on the bench against the Swedes this evening. But with Ireland trailing, the Spurs man was introduced just after the break and took less than 20 minutes to make his mark, beautifully equalising with his second goal in as many games.

And then moments after Conor Masterson had put Ireland in front, with Sweden piling forward, Parrott was put in the clear and composed himself before producing a Robbie Keane-esc chip to secure three vital points and leave Stephen Kenny’s men on course to qualify for their first major Under-21 tournament in their history.

You can see both of those clinical finishes in the two videos below.
