Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane praised Joe Rodon's performance for Tottenham in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea.
The Wales centre-back was selected by Jose Mourinho to start against the Blues at Stamford Bridge, a daunting place to make your full Premier League debut.
After a shaky start, Rodon grew into the game well and looked composed on the ball, bringing it out of defence and keeping a good shape.
Timo Werner had a goal disallowed when he managed to get away from the former Swansea City defender, but the effort was ruled out for offside.
And right at the death, Rodon's attempted headed backpass was intercepted by substitute Olivier Giroud, but the Frenchman's effort lacked power.
Barring those two incidentes, Rodon performed well and Keane was impressed with what he saw.
"Yeah he done very, very well," he told Sky Sports.
"He spoke well after the game. He got lucky, he gave two opportunities, particularly Giroud's, certainly he should do better, but a good debut for him, he spoke well and it looks like he's got a bright future ahead of him.
"It's a tough place for him to go for his debut, he got a busted lip for his troubles as well, but yeah, done really well, nice composure, nice body language, he looked composed out there."
Fellow pundit Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink agreed that the 23-year-old looked the part.
He said: "He looks like a proper Spurs player, a centre-half, nothing phases him, he put his head in when needed. You have to be comfortable on the ball because you want to control the game.
"I like that he gets up straight away and gets on with it because that tells me he is hard enough."
On the Giroud incident, he added: "From this he will learn and get better, the next time he will head it to the side instead of going back to the goalkeeper."
The last word was saved for Keane, who said: "You need a bit of luck in this game, and he deserved that little bit of luck at the end there."
Rodon himself was interviewed by Sky Sports after the match, with the centre-back calling it a dream come true.
"To come here and make my debut, it was a dream come true. Hopefully I can carry on and learn from this," he said.
"I knew I was going to be in for a tough night. I got away with two mistakes but I'll learn from it and come back from it."
