We all thought it would be another regular Thursday night football where the ‘big’ teams would conquer the underdogs but a certain game in Slovenia stunned everyone. A Slovenian team, NS Mura, defeated English Premier league ‘top 6’ team, Tottenham by 2 goals to 1.
Even though a majority of the first team players did not start the game, it would be difficult for Spurs fans to swallow this loss because they hoped to get a ‘new manager bounce’ since appointing Antonio Conte as coach.
Ns Mura took the lead in the 11th minute of the game with a stunning goal from Tomi Horvat.
In the 34th minute, things went from bad to worse for Spurs as Ryan Sessegnon got his second yellow card of the match.
Harry Kane was able to equalise in the 72nd minute, showing a spark that there might be light at the end of the tunnel for the Londoners. However, that light was extinguished in added time as Amadej Marosa slotted in the winner.
This was indeed a story of David conquering Goliath. In his post-match interview, Antonio Conte sighted that the ‘level at Tottenham is not so high’.
The question is, will the Italian gaffer get Spurs to the ‘high level’? or should Spurs fans expect a series of humiliating defeat from underdogs this season?
