Dest, 18, started for Ajax against Lille and he produced a stunning display at right-back as his side convincingly won their opening group stage match 3-0.

He performed brilliantly on the right-flank as he made a couple of buccaneering attacking runs down the wing and showed off some of his silky skills in a spectacular individual showing.

Dest enjoyed six years at Ajax's famed youth academy before breaking into the first-team earlier in the summer.

He's already a regular, playing eight games so far this season, including last night's superb outing in the Champions League and he's committed his future to the club, signing a contract extension until 2022.

Dest, who has an American father, has represented U.S at international level but he's only played friendlies so he can still switch allegiances with Dutch fans hoping Ronald Koeman can convince the youngster to play for the Netherlands.

The Ajax conveyor belt shows no sign of let up with the next group of talent coming through the grades and it appears Dest is spearheading that gifted batch.

Sergiño Dest. Remember the name.
