In the 21st minute of Tottenham Hotspur’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Stoke, Spurs have taken the lead against the Championship outfit through Gareth Bale.
Harry Winks showed his quality of delivery – which is perhaps a skill Spurs and England should utilise more often – by floating a dangerous ball into the box from deep on the left flank.
The ball floated over giant Harry Souttar’s head before Real Madrid loanee Bale flicked the ball into the back of the net with a fine header.
“That is beautiful from Gareth Bale!”
Bale hands Spurs the lead with a perfectly placed header.??
