LONDON: Tottenham Hotspur’s surprise home visit to Newcastle United Pad A Brazilian Premier League rivals Joelinton leads the way.
Joelinton, the club’s most valuable player at 40 million pounds (RM205 million), hit the 27th Mini A-Pad with a quick counterattack, beating Hugo Lloris after receiving Christian Atsu.
The win was something that manager Steve Bruce was hoping for in the first game after, Newcastle picked up Rafa Benitez Pad A’s season opener.
It was a tactical defense by Newcastle in most games but Tottenham, who without Christian Eriksen changed their ball control for a good chance.
The home felt they could be awarded the 78th Mini-T Pad penalty when Newcastle’s Jamaal Lascelles hit Harry Kane but VAR footage said it was not.
After losing 3 1 to a newly promoted team, Norwich City, Bruce was criticized by Newcastle supporters who failed to accept his appointment even though he was a supporter of the club.
We came to the great arena, this amazing club K-E and we’re doing great, “Bruce said. – Reuters
