Exciting Irish teenager Troy Parrott enhanced his reputation further by sliding home a crucial goal for Tottenham against Barcelona in their UEFA Youth League clash in Spain on Tuesday afternoon.

Parrott finished off a slick 17th-minute move at Barca’s academy stadium, the Mini Estadi, and impressed throughout with his clever movement and vision.

Spurs had to win to progress from Group B at the expense of Inter Milan, who are captained by Clare-born defender Ryan Nolan. Barca had already qualified.

Parrott's opener left them in the driving seat and a minute from time Rodel Richards bundled home a second to secure a 2-0 victory. 

It's been a whirlwind week for the former Belvedere Boys man. On Saturday he travelled with the first-team for their Premier League match against Leicester City.

Last night he trained with Mauricio Pochettino's squad at the Nou Camp ahead of their do-or-die Champions League collision.

Despite still being just 16, he's being tipped to make a full debut sooner rather than later. 

"All the players that we have in the squad, the younger ones like Oliver Skipp or Troy Parrott, who was involved [on Saturday] for the first time, it's because they're involved in the first team during days, during weeks, during months, and it's only to give the possibility to play," Pochettino said after Spurs' win at the Foxes.

"I don't doubt and I am not worried about players who are injured or don't perform in their best, because we have another who can replace them. I promise we are going to win or lose with one or another."
