Tottenham Hotspur youngster Troy Parrott has had a fantastic first season in the academy.

Parrott, 17, is a regular for Tottenham's under-23s and is tipped for a big future.

The only ones more excited than Spurs fans are Ireland supporters.

 

Parrott is tipped as the next Robbie Keane after prolific performances at youth level for his country.

Now Parrott has been called into the Republic of Ireland under-21 squad, report RTE.

He had a simple reaction to the recognition.

 

This is a new test for Parrott, and it will be useful for Tottenham too, so they can get a new perspective on how he adjusts.

Parrott seems destined to be a big player at Spurs in the future, the only question is how quickly?
