‘As expected of Kane’ Tottenham lead 1-0 over Portsmouth

 Tottenham Hotspur’s solver was Harry Kane.

Tottenham played the second half of the home game against Portsmouth (third division) in the 2022-23 season England Football Association (FA) Cup Round 3 (Round of 64) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 7th at 9:30 pm (Korean time). A 1-0 lead in the middle of the process.

Tottenham came out with a 3-4-3 model. Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Brian Hill were at the forefront, while Ryan Sessegnon, Papesar, Oliver Skip, and Emerson Royal were at the back. Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez and Japhet Tanganga formed the back three and Fraser Foster in goal.

Portsmouth also faced off with a 3-4-3. Owen Dale, Colby Bishop, and Rico Hackett led the offense, while Denver Holm, Joe Morell, Ryan Tunnicliffe, and Zach Swanson filled the back. Conor Ogilvy, Sean Raghett and Michael Morrison formed the defensive line and Josh Griffith donned the goalkeeper’s gloves.

Tottenham was ahead in terms of objective power, but the game was not like that. Rather, Portsmouth aimed at the goal first.

In the 11th minute of the first half, Bishop dropped the ball from the side. Hackett connected with an exquisite bicycle kick, but it was blocked by the goalkeeper.

Tottenham counterattacked with a set play. In the 13th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min’s corner kick turned wide inward. The goalkeeper’s hard-hitting ball was hit by Kane’s shot again, but it hit the defender’s body. 토토

Since then, Tottenham has not been able to launch an effective attack even after owning the ball for a long time. He was blocked by the opponent’s dense defense and looked frustrated. Right before the end of the first half, Son Heung-min’s right-footed kick came out, but even this was missed and the first half ended.

At the beginning of the second half, Tottenham broke the balance of 0. In the 5th minute of the second half, after Kane exchanged a two-on-one pass with Sessegnon, he opened the Portsmouth goal with a powerful mid-range shot.

Currently, Tottenham lead 1-0 in the 7th minute of the second half.
