Tottenham youngster Filip Lesniak scored his first ever under-21 goal.

Tottenham youngster Filip Lesniak scored his first league goal for the under-21 side on Monday, netting in a 7-4 victory over Leicester.

Lesniak has been at Tottenham since 2012, and is a Slovakian under-19 international.

The teenager is still just 19, and is pictured below in the number four shirt celebrating his goal from the edge of the area, with teammate Kyle Walker-Peters.

Lesniak is also pictured below congratulating striker Kazaiah Sterling on scoring his first ever goal for the under-21s.

The 7-4 scoreline is not one he will have been particularly pleased with, given he was playing in defence.

Lesniak came to the club as a defensive midfielder, but in recent months has been lining up at centre-back for the under-21s, prompted by Dominic Ball going on loan last season first to Cambridge United and then this time around to Rangers.

The youngster has some way to go to make it at Spurs, with Cameron Carter-Vickers and Milos Vejkovic believed to be ahead of him in the queue for the first team.

Scoring goals is however one way to get himself noted, while the way he has grown during his time at the club shows he is developing well physically from the scrawny player who featured for their NextGen Series side in 2012/13.
