'Next Drogba' makes Spurs case again

Tottenham Hotspur starlet Souleymane Coulibaly added to his growing reputation on Tuesday with a goal for the club's select XI against QPR.

With the international break halting Barclays Premier League proceedings, Spurs took on the Hoops in a friendly as both clubs looked to sharpen some of their players.

Yago Falque once again impressed, showing first team potential during this season's loan spell from Juventus and scoring to put the north London side in-front.

And, whilst Jason Puncheon rescued a point for the visitors, it was a dominant display from the hosts which will have delighted Tottenham Hotspur Technical Director Tim Sherwood.

It's Coulibaly who continues to make waves outside of Harry Redknapp's first team, stepping-up from some stellar performances in the U19 NextGen Series to make an impact at a more senior level with Spurs.

The 16-year-old Ivorian, dubbed the next Didier Drogba, has scored nine goals in just four games for his country at U17 level, and is the player everyone is talking about on the Tottenham Hotspur messageboards.


As well as equalising, the teenager his the post twice in the match, staking a further claim for chances in either the Europa League or FA Cup when the competition reaches the third round stage.

It's unlikely Redknapp will be willing to gamble on the youngster in a Barclays Premier League match, and next up for Tottenham Hotspur is Newcastle.
