Well, this would certainly be one for the record books…
On Sunday evening, Tottenham Hotspurs travelled to Rochdale to take on a League One club in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Such was Mauricio Pochettino’s confidence heading into the tie that he left several of his usual starting XI on the bench with Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli all on the sidelines for the away fixture.
However, just before halftime, the Argentine manager was reminded of the potential for enormous upset in the FA Cup with Rochdale executing a wonderful flowing counterattack before a tidy finish saw the Premier League giants staring at an unlikely defeat.
Spurs headed into their dressing rooms at halftime with the scoreline remaining 1-0 in Rochdale’s favour. It’s not over yet but, if you’re looking for something to entertain you on a Sunday afternoon, it’s certainly worth keeping your eye on the FA Cup David vs Goliath clash.
