Less than two minutes into tonight’s FA Cup 3rd Round replay between Tottenham Hotspur and Middlesbrough, Spurs have been gifted the lead.
Boro goalkeeper Tomas Mejias made a costly mistake with his attempt to play out of the back as he didn’t realise that Spurs star Giovani Lo Celso was lurking behind one of Boro’s defenders.
Lo Celso expertly glided past a defender after intercepting the ball before tucking the ball into the bottom corner with a tidy finish.
Take a look at the Argentinean ace’s opener below:

Lo Celso was certainly rewarded for his extra efforts, it’s situations like this that pressing can be extremely effective.
