The Spurs starlet was a creative force in what was an astonishing 7-4 result.

Promising Spurs youngster Anthony Georgiou spoke to the Tottenham website after his role in the Under-21 side's crazy 7-4 win over Leicester City on Monday, and even he couldn't remember how many goals he assisted in the victory.

There were understandably plenty of attacking players that excelled in the performance, but though he didn't get on the scoresheet, 18-year-old Georgiou was undoubtedly one of the most accomplished of performers for the home side.

The Spurs TV interviewer speaking to the youngster after the game asked how it felt to set up a couple of goals in the game, with Georgiou himself indicating that he wasn't sure how many he had supplied in the 11-goal fixture.

"It was an exciting game to watch," the forward told the Spurs website. "It's good for us to score seven goals but at the same time we conceded four so it's something to work on for the next game.

"I think I got three or four assists, I'm not sure, but it's nice to contribute to the game and set up goals for the team.

"We've got players that can score goals and create goals so it shows that we are a very good attacking team."

According to the Tottenham report on the match, Georgiou set up strikes by Kenny McEvoy, who netted a hat-trick, captain Cameron Carter-Vickers as well as attacker Kazaiah Sterling.

With the number of outstanding academy players that have been given opportunities in the first team over the last few seasons, there is a clear incentive for those currently coming through that if they do well, they will eventually get a chance among the many international stars in the senior side.

And Georgiou, who moved up to a regular spot in Ugo Ehiogu's Under-21 side this season after scoring four times in twenty appearances for the Under-18's last year, will surely edge closer to following in the footsteps of Harry Kane and Ryan Mason with performances like the one he produced against the Foxes.
