Gareth Bala’s renewed debut immediately became a source of teasing jokes.
LONDON, BRATISLAVA. A great football menu is served to the fans at the beginning of the season by the English Premier League.
In Sunday’s match of the 5th round between Tottenham and West Ham United, the home team had a famous start.
After just a few seconds, Son scored the opening goal, then overtook Polish goalkeeper Fabianski Harry Kane – first with his right hand to the pole and then close to his head after the millimeter center of Reguilon. In the 16th minute it was 3: 0 and a debacle was drawn.
Although the guests were able to work out their chances, there was no indication that they would be able to return to the match. In addition, Kane had a hat-trick within reach – Fabianski was overwhelmed by joy in the first case and a pole in the second.
In the 70th minute, Gareth Bale took the first time after returning to Tottenham and – things started to happen. But not according to the taste of the Welsh representative. West Ham dramatized the game in the 82nd and 85th minute.
With 2 minutes played, Bale nearly put the visitors another one up as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot passed just over the bar. And he regretted it for a moment. Lanzini scored 3 – 3 from the last action of the match.
Such a course has, of course, left a negative mark on the mental well-being of coach Spurs Jose Mourinh. When an NBC Sports reporter began a post-match interview with a question about Bale, the angry Portuguese interrupted him.
“Before the match you wanted to talk about Gareth Ball, after the match you want to talk about Gareth Ball. But this was Tottenham’s match against West Ham,” Mourinho replied.
The reporter quickly ended the interview, and the studio moderator promptly added, “If Gareth Bale plays, they will ask him about Gareth Bala.”
When a Sky Sports reporter asked Mourinha for a moment about the development of the match, he replied dryly. “That’s football, that’s what happens. To waste a three-goal lead is reprehensible. We deserved it.”
