Tottenham’s stunning new state-of-the-art stadium hosted it’s first ever football match today, Spurs’ Under-18s side took on Southampton, take a look at the first ever goal.
This afternoon’s Under-18s clash was staged at the new site as part of a test to see if the stadium can hold it’s own before Tottenham’s first-team plan to move into it for their Premier League tie against Crystal Palace on April 3.
According to the Standard, the cost of building the stadium is near the £1billion mark. Astonishing.
17-year-old winger J’Neil Bennett wrote his name into the Tottenham history books by scoring the first ever goal at the stadium in the 11th minute of today’s youth clash, and what a goal it was.
The winger cut in from the left-wing, dazzling Southampton’s defenders – before curling a strike into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
