In all the fuss over transfers yesterday you may have missed a rather interesting scoreline from Brisbane Road yesterday. In the group stages of the NextGen tournament, Spurs’ youngsters demolished an Inter Milan team by seven goals to one.
Included in the Tottenham line up was new signing Souleymayne Coulibaly who marked the match with a double strike which was matched by two goals from Alex Pritchard. However, it was 16 year old Croatian striker Tomislav Gomelt who stole the show with a first half hat trick that saw Spurs go into the break with a 6-1 advantage.
We can only guess how much damage Gomelt and Spurs would have done in the second half, but unfortunately the Croatian received a red card on 38 minutes for a foul in the box.
The NexGen tournament always seemed like a great opportunity for these players and maybe more Spurs fans will be keeping an eye on it after this result. Our next game is away to PSV at the end of this month.
