Robbie Brady warmed up for next weekend’s World Cup qualifier against Georgia with a pinpoint assist in Burnley’s draw at Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
The Irish international seems to have settled at Turf Moor now having been in an out of the side after his then-club record move from Norwich, and his ball to Chris Wood to rescue a stoppage-time point against Spurs at Wembley.
With the game starting to slip away from Burnley and Tottenham finally closing in on that elusive Wembley victory, Brady looked up and played an inch-perfect ball to Wood to score his first goal since his transfer from Leeds last week:

It now means that Sean Dyche’s side have incredibly, picked up four points from their opening two away fixtures – against Spurs and Chelsea no less. Given how poor their away form was last season, it will please the manager no end to have made such a strong start on the road in this campaign.
It will also be a great source of happiness that Brady is starting to come into his own at the club.. The Dubliner has shown with Ireland what a valuable asset he can be, and it’s one that Clarets fans will hope to get used to in the coming months.
GOAL Spurs 1-1 Burnley (90+2 mins)
