Some Tottenham fans have been left extremely impressed by Maksim Paskotsi’s performance as Estonia played out a 0-0 draw against Wales on Wednesday.

Estonia went into the game in Cardiff as massive underdogs, having lost against a weakened Belgian side as well as Northern Ireland last week.

However, against the odds, the Baltic nation managed to frustrate Wales and come away with a point from the game.

Paskotsi put in an accomplished display in the right side of a back three against a strong Wales forward line that featured the likes of Gareth Bale and Daniel James.

The 18-year-old was used as a right-back in pre-season by Nuno Espirito Santo and was handed his competitive Spurs first-team debut in the 1-0 first-leg loss Pacos De Ferriera last month.

On seeing Paskotsi’s accomplished display on Wednesday, some Spurs fans are excited to see how the defender will develop over the coming years.

I am not on the Paskotsi hype train just yet and will wait to see more of him before making up my mind. However, the experience of playing high-pressure international matches at such a young age will certainly hold him in good stead. The 18-year-old might get a chance to prove himself in the Europa Conference League this season.
