The Tottenham Hotspur youngster turned out for the second half against the Italian club.
Tottenham Hotspur could not maintain their winning start to pre-season, as a late flurry of goals saw them lose 3-2 to Roma in the United States in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Mauricio Pochettino's side were 2-0 down with just three minutes of normal-time remaining, but somehow they clawed their way back courtesy of strikes from Harry Winks and Vincent Janssen to seemingly take a share of the spoils.
However Roma had other ideas, with Marco Tumminello scoring what proved to be the winner just a minute after the Dutchman's equaliser.
While Tottenham were left disappointed by the result there were still positives to take from the match, not least the performance of 20-year-old Anthony Georgiou.
The player has featured 28 times for Tottenham's under-23 side to date, providing seven assists in the process, and the versatile youngster did not let his first-team opportunity go to waste.
A left-sided midfielder who can also operate at left-back if required, Georgiou has been making waves with Tottenham's second string for some time now and, along with Tashan Oaklay-Boothe, he is doing his best to force his way into Pochettino's first-team plans this summer.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Spurs fans thought of Georgiou's 45-minute run-out and you can read a selection of what we found below:

Gutted with the result but promising signs from the youngsters Georgiou especially looks exciting hope he gets more game time #THFC— Jordan Yorath (@sticksTHFC) July 26, 2017
#thfc Georgiou's started the second half well as the left wing-back. He's got some pace and is attacking down the touchline at every chance.— Ben Pearce (@BenPearceSpurs) July 26, 2017
#thfc We seem to have a ready made winger/wingback in Georgiou. No need to spend unnecessary money. Janssen will come good- keep the faith.— Dier Straits (@Dierbium) July 26, 2017
Who needs a French winger when you've got Anthony Georgiou!?? #COYS— Sonny Daze (@natecancook) July 26, 2017
