Joseph Minala, a 17-year-old at Lazio who shot to prominence in February when a picture of him looking considerably older than his official age emerged, has won some silverware at youth level with the club.

Lazio, led by coach Simone Inzaghi, claimed the Youth Cup and after the victory Minala was pictured (left) by the trophy:

Regardless of his age, Minala appears to be on an upward trajectory with the Italian club—having won this trophy, he also made his first-team Serie A debut earlier in the month, coming on as a substitute in a 2-0 victory over Sampdoria.
