A much-changed Tottenham facet endured a horror night in Slovenia as they have been embarrassed by NS Mura to go away their hopes of constructing the Europa Convention League final 16 hanging by a thread.
Amadej Marosa’s injury-time aim sealed the consequence after Harry Kane regarded to have salvaged a degree for 10-man Spurs.
Kane chipped in after Tommy Horvat opened the scoring and Ryan Sessegnon’s crimson decreased woeful Spurs’ numbers.
It means second place in Group G is the very best Spurs can hope to attain.
Of their remaining group recreation, Spurs host unbeaten Rennes, who’ve already received the group courtesy of Thursday’s victory over Vitesse Arnhem.
The Dutch facet are stage on factors with Antonio Conte’s facet and host Mura of their remaining match. Each video games happen on 9 December.
Ending second within the group would imply a two-legged play-off for Spurs to achieve the final 16, with each video games being performed in February.
Conte’s second string flunk the take a look at
If Spurs’ new Italian boss was below any misapprehension in regards to the measurement of the duty he has on his arms in attempting to revive the membership’s fortunes, Thursday laid it naked.
They nonetheless have a aggressive first-choice XI, however on this proof these trying to break into it are woefully quick of what’s wanted.
Tanguy Ndombele did not get any sort of grip on midfield, the defence regarded weak even to Mura’s modest frontline and Dele Alli floated tamely via the competition earlier than being changed within the 54th minute.
Kane was one among two gamers to maintain their beginning place from Sunday’s win over Leeds and gave us a glimpse of that famed predatory intuition along with his well-taken chipped equaliser however for the remainder of the time was a lumbering shell of his former self, stuffed with poor touches and fluffed pictures.
It might be argued that Sessegnon was searching for to point out eagerness in his first begin since late August but it surely was silly to lunge in to earn a second reserving on the half-hour after he had already seen yellow for hauling a person again earlier within the first half.
The introduction of Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Ben Davies early within the second half injected extra goal and risk and it was they that helped construct up the momentum for the leveller.
However in pushing for a late winner that might have ensured not less than a play-off spot, they over-committed, leaving room for Mura to interrupt and Marosa to seek out the web through a deflected shot.
They may get one other probability to proceed this European marketing campaign in two weeks’ time. What number of extra possibilities a few of these Spurs gamers will get below Conte stays to be seen.
