Ethan featured in central midfield and was mostly limited to defending as PSG looked to hold onto a 5-1 lead thanks to goals from Warren Emery, Ismael Gharbi, Pascal Lemina and a double from Ilyes Housni.

But things quickly went downhill for the French side as Juventus U19 star Luis Hasa scored a free-kick minutes after Ethan's introduction, before Dean Huijsen netted a penalty to make it 5-3.

PSG held onto the lead and Ethan gained valuable experience as he continues his meteoric rise through PSG's youth system.

Last summer the teenager put pen to paper on a three-year deal that will see him stay at the Parc des Princes until 2024 at the very least.

And a few months after that the prodigy was called up to the France under-16 squad for the first time.

Ethan has impressive physical qualities and already stands at 5 ft 9, just a few centimetres shorter than brother Kylian.

Speaking to RMC Sport, director of INF Clairefontaine Jean-Claude Lafargue said of Ethan: "He’s a very elegant midfielder.

"He is very fluent, he is very intelligent. He’s a player in the making, that’s for sure."

Ethan also came up with Mbappe's iconic celebration during a game of FIFA, with the PSG star first unveiling it after scoring against Borussia Dortmund.
