Tottenham’s unbeaten streak has come to an end as the London side suffered a Champions League defeat at the hands of Sporting Lisbon yesterday.
Everything was going to zero draw, but the Portuguese team was able to push the team from North London, and bring the final result to victory.
After the game, Tottenham’s right-back Emerson Royal got a lot of reproaches. It was because of him that the goal happened, which allowed the opponent to open the score in the match. The former Barcelona player let the team down at the crucial moment, playing quite poorly, not only in that moment, but throughout the match.
Correspondents assessed the Brazilian’s game in the match against Sporting. Speaking to football.london, Alasdair Gold criticized the actions of the defender.
‘Same old story with his attacking bluntness and at the back he was beaten in the air with Kane for Paulinho’s header and then Gomes skipped past with a nutmeg far too easily.’
Also, Ethan Budowsky, expressed his opinion on the player’s performance, stating that the right back
“The worst player on every pitch he steps on” and that he “belongs nowhere near a Top 6 club.”
