After giving away two penalties last week, Juan FOYTH played hero in Tottenham’s 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace.
Selected by Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI for this month’s friendly matches against Mexico, Tottenham manager Mauricio POCHETTINO kept faith in the young defender and started him on Saturday. POCHETTINO’s faith paid dividends as the former Estudiantes defender scored the only goal of the match.
A header from close range was enough to give Tottenham the three points under the rain in London. Erik LAMELA was substituted off with a head injury as the number 11 was cut and bleeding from the head.
