Son Heung-min Scores Twice for Tottenham in FA Cup Match

Son Heung-min Scores Twice for Tottenham in FA Cup Match

Spurs beat Rochdale 6-1 in a fifth round replay on Wednesday evening, meaning they will instead be in sixth round action at Swansea City on Saturday 17th March.

Even this seemingly innocuous goal had Tierney questioning himself as, once more, he raised his left hand to his ear, somewhat stunting the celebrations in the away end.

"If we can limit the errors and get the game flowing as much as we can". We hit the post to go 2-1 up.

"I'm happy because it's a good opportunity". The players here have made me feel welcome and the manager has put his faith in me and given me a run in the team. Let's be proud about what we tried to achieve.

Football is about emotion, it's a context of emotion if we are going to kill emotion in football. There have been suggestions VAR could be deployed at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation but Pochettino insisted: "I think football is about to make a mistake".

Fans at Wembley, Spurs's temporary home while their successor ground to White Hart Lane is built, had no way of knowing the reasons behind the VAR's decisions as, unlike the systems in use for rugby and cricket, they were not broadcast or displayed on a giant screen.

"It's going to be a hard game but an enjoyable opportunity and that's what I want the players to see it as". I'm not sure that system is going to help. "Yes, we start to feel like it's like home".

The hosts looked to take an early lead after Erik Lamela propped up in the box to tap home, only for the VAR officiating team to disallow the goal.

Rochdale, buoyed by their reprieval, countered, with Matt Done firing an angled strike narrowly wide, with skipper Ian Henderson agonisingly close to a telling touch.

"The move to Burton came about so quickly as I was told it was happening on the Tuesday, I played in a training game on the Friday and they offered me a contract after that". It turned out he had, and nobody looked as relieved as the Spaniard when Tierney waved him back to the centre-circle after another 20 seconds of checking.

Then amid the confusion of it all, Juan Foyth missed a simple through ball and Stephen Humphrys stole in to equalise. An global break and Spurs having to cancel the Friday 16 March Wembley fixture against Newcastle will ensure that.

Spurs were now running riot. Soon after, Lamela struck the woodwork with a fizzing dead-ball attempt.

'But it is true with Harry on the pitch, he is going to struggle to take them!'

After making the decision to penalise Son, the referee booked the player and gave a free-kick to Rochdale - in line with the rules. Kyle Walker-Peters found himself in the clear and found the net despite the attentions of Rochdale stopper, Lillis.

Tottenham face a battle to secure Champions League qualification, with Pochettino's men sitting in fourth, as just six points separate second-placed Manchester United with Chelsea in fifth.
