Controversial 17 year old Joseph Minala makes his debut for the Lazio first team v Sampdoria

In February young Joseph Minala of Lazio went viral, with people confused by his aged look despite being only 17.

Minala had to close down his social media accounts after receiving a torrent of abuse from football fans.

Today, the 17 year old made his first team debut for Lazio, coming off the bench in their 2-0 win over Sampdoria.

We could be seeing much more of this, not-so-fresh-faced, youngster in years to come.
