Republic of Ireland under-19 star Troy Parrott scored a spectacular goal for Tottenham Hotspur in their UEFA Youth League group game against Inter Milan on Wednesday.

The Dubliner put Spurs 2-1 up at Hotspur Way as he received the ball on the edge of the box, eked out a yard of space and curled an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

It wasn’t to be enough on the day as three second-half goals from the Nerrazzurri saw Spurs to their first defeat of the campaign but still in contention for a spot in the last 32.

Parrott was the star of Ireland under-19s’ European Championships qualifying campaign in Longford earlier this month, scoring four time as Ireland topped a group containing the Netherlands.

The draw for the Elite Round, for which Ireland are first seeds, will take place in Nyon, Switzerland on Thursday, December 6th.
