Tottenham Hotspur, an English professional footballer, defeated Burnley and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup (League Cup).
Heung-Min Son appeared as a substitute in the middle of the second half and contributed to the team’s victory.
Tottenham Hotspur beat Burnley 1-0 in the round of 16 match of the 2021-2022 season held at Turf Moor, Burnley, England on the 28th (Korean time) thanks to Lucas Mora’s winning goal in the 23rd minute of the second half.
Tottenham Hotspur, who have lost two consecutive games in the regular league and in the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL), enjoyed their first victory in three official matches.
The draw for the quarterfinals will be held on the 30th.
Son Heung-min was replaced in the 21st minute of the second half and diligently ran around the ground for 24 minutes until the game was over, but he could not raise an attack point.
Heung-Min Son has recorded 4 goals and 2 assists this season (4 goals and 1 assist in the regular league, 1 assist in the UECL).
Although Tottenham took the lead from the beginning, they did not have many shooting opportunities as they could not effectively penetrate the opponent’s defense.
In the third minute of the first half, Harry Kane’s shot from the left side of the goal area after receiving an infiltration pass from Giovanni Rosselso went wide to the right of the post.
In the 43rd minute of the first half, Kane finished with a scissor kick from a corner kick from the left by Rosselso, but the shot soared over the post.
Tottenham used their first substitution card in the 23rd minute of the first half. Brian Hill felt unwell after colliding with an opponent and was eventually replaced by Lucas Mora.
No goals were scored even after half-time, so Tottenham manager Nunu Santo made a change in the 21st minute of the second half, excluding Stevan Bergwein and Oliver Skip, but Heung-Min Son and Tangi Ndombele.
Shortly thereafter, Mora scored the game-defining goal.
In the 23rd minute of the second half, Emerson finished the chorus from the right with a header. Mora rushed into the door and tried to hit it with the head, but after bouncing once, it headed to the left of the post.
