In youth football, you sometimes come across someone who is much bigger than their opponents.
Some youngsters grow faster than others of the same age.
That’s just the way it is.
And one youngster who has quite a sizeable height advantage over his opponents is Ajax youth player, David Easmon.
Not a great deal is known about Easmon.
- Sevilla U12 player is absolutely huge
- GIVEMESPORT writers pick Euro 2020 England team
- Real Madrid’s youngest goalscorers since 2000 – where are they now?
But what we do know of him is that he is 14 years old and plays for Ajax U15s.
He’s going viral on Twitter after a couple of images emerged of him in action against Sparta’s U15s on Monday.
Images have been captured of him absolutely towering over his opponents.
Think that one showed a big height advantage? Have a look at this image below…
Quite astonishing. Imagine being the poor opponent that has to attempt to tackle Easmon.
Little is known about Easmon but @AjaxYA, an account dedicated to sharing news about Ajax’s academy, has shared some information about him.
The 14-year-old is a defender and has been impressing in the U15s.
He’s been described as having a ‘great season’ so far, having scored twice and assisted once in 10 games.
We look forward to seeing Easmon progress through the youth system and perhaps making an appearance for Ajax in the not so distant future.
Easmon isn’t the only youngster who has gone viral for their height in recent times.
Sevilla’s U12 player, Ibrahima Sow, is currently five foot seven and looks a giant compared to his opponents.
And who can forget Romelu Lukaku?
The Belgian forward looked like a grown man compared to others in his youth.
Here’s an image of him when he was just 13.
Both Easmon and Sow will be looking to emulate the success that Lukaku has had during his career.
