Ajax U15's recorded a convincing 6-2 win over rivals Sparta Rotterdam at the weekend, but it was a picture involving defender David Easmon that grabbed the headlines. The 14-year-old centre-back towered over both the opposition and his own teammates Easmon, who has made 10 appearances for the club this season, is highly rated by many at the club as he continues to make a breakthrough in the academy system.:eyes:' ONE TO WATCH #12: •:bust_in_silhouette: David Easmon (14, #AjaxU15) •:round_pushpin: Defender •:star2: Has a great season so far with U15!

His name is Bitshiabu El Chadaille and he plays for #PSG under-12s. Full story here: pic.twitter.com/GbvYVH1ENV - Onefootball (@Onefootball) January 1, 2018 El Chadaille, who was born in 2005, can also be seen on a weekly basis towering over his teammates and opposition. In fact, during the Promises tournament in Tenerife, the club had to reportedly provide evidence that he was 12 years old due to his remarkable height and size. Sevilla's giant Senegalese striker Ibrahima Sow is also making waves in the youth system at La Liga side Sevilla, aged 12. The youngster scored a remarkable 29 goals in all competitions last season. Sow uses his pace and power to dominate opponents, and his hold up play is second to none. His lightning quick feet also helps the Sevilla U12 captain in tricky situations. I mean, just check out this goal he scored against Real Betis. He's got it all. IBRA scores a goal Zlatan would have been proud of!:heart: @SevillaFC_ENG:heart:#LaLigaPromises Santander pic.twitter.com/o18YEyihSz - LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) June 15, 2019 In youth football, you sometimes come across someone who is much bigger than their opponents. Some youngsters grow faster than others of the same age. That's just the way it is. And one youngster who has quite a sizeable height advantage over his opponents is Ajax youth player, David Easmon. Not a great deal is known about Easmon. But what we do know of him is that he is 14 years old and plays for Ajax U15s. He's going viral on Twitter after a couple of images emerged of him in action against Sparta's U15s on Monday. Images have been captured of him absolutely towering over his opponents. Think that one showed a big height advantage? Have a look at this image below... Quite astonishing. Imagine being the poor opponent that has to attempt to tackle Easmon. Little is known about Easmon but @AjaxYA, an account dedicated to sharing news about Ajax's academy, has shared some information about him. The 14-year-old is a defender and has been impressing in the U15s. He's been described as having a 'great season' so far, having scored twice and assisted once in 10 games. We look forward to seeing Easmon progress through the youth system and perhaps making an appearance for Ajax in the not so distant future. Easmon isn't the only youngster who has gone viral for their height in recent times. Sevilla's U12 player, Ibrahima Sow, is currently five foot seven and looks a giant compared to his opponents. And who can forget Romelu Lukaku? The Belgian forward looked like a grown man compared to others in his youth. Here's an image of him when he was just 13. Both Easmon and Sow will be looking to emulate the success that Lukaku has had during his career. News Now - Sport News
