Eyoma, the Thuram of the Spurs

U17 world champion has faced FC Porto in the Youth League

Timothy Eyoma is an 18-year-old defender born in England and of Nigerian descent, but anyone who sees him on the pitch can perfectly imagine him as the son of former French international Lilian Thuram.

The resemblance is not limited to the ability to play on both the defensive and right side axes, it is also in the way that it combines physical strength and quality in the construction of play from recessed areas.

Also known as «TJ», Eyoma became Tottenham’s 12-year-old player. In the first years of formation it played like mainly as central, but in the last two years it happened to also play regularly like lateral right. It alternates, in the background, since even last March lined the defensive axis against FC Porto, in the quarterfinals of the Youth League.

Eyoma is strong in aerial play and physical duels, but also agile in marking, although he can still improve on depth control. He faces the building game with comfort, even taking some risks, even if he is playing in the central corridor. As lateral it will be excessive to consider him afoito, because it does not appear with abundance in the last third, but likes to leave in football supported, in a technically sustained way.

Timothy, who has brother Aaron at Arsenal (three years older), is an English U-18 international, but last year he was part of England’s U17 finalists, who later won the World Championship.
