Inside Tottenham Hotspur, it seems that they are satisfied with Pedro Poro’s performance.
Tottenham drew 3-3 with Southampton in the 28th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th. Tottenham, who only gained one point, remained in fourth place (49 points).
It was a disappointing result. Tottenham failed to win against Southampton, which is at the bottom of the league. Tottenham, who maintained a one-point lead until the end of the second half, gave away a penalty kick just before the end of the game. It was a pity that Pape Sar’s poor ball handling. In the end, James Ward-Prowse, who came out as a kicker, allowed the equalizer.
A 3-3 draw. Injuries also occurred here. After Richarlison was injured in the 5th minute of the first half, Dejan Kulusevski was rushed in. In the 37th minute of the first half, even Ben Davis sat down. With two players lost in the first half alone, options for change in the second half were reduced. Now, Tottenham are threatened in fourth place by Newcastle United and Liverpool.
The only positive news was the POW score. Poro scored the opening goal with a powerful shot after Son Heung-min’s sharp penetrating pass in the first minute of added time. Poro is a player who joined Tottenham during the transfer window in January. As an outstanding attacker at Sporting Lisbon, he scored 2 goals and 6 assists in 14 Portuguese league games in the first half. 안전놀이터
Tottenham showed interest in this. He had Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty, and Jed Spence in the right wingback position, but none of them were confidently trusted. Accordingly, Tottenham paid 45 million euros (approximately 62.7 billion won, complete transfer after lease) and brought the prisoner. And they sent out Doherty and Spence (on loan).
Poro showed a disappointing appearance in his debut match. In mid-February, he showed a disappointing performance against Leicester City, in Tottenham’s 4–1 defeat. However, after gradually adapting to the EPL stage, he raised his first attack point (1 assist) after joining Tottenham against Nottingham last time. And in this game, he even reported his debut goal.
Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano later said, “Poro scored his first goal for Tottenham and the EPL. Tottenham are already happy with his performance and his progress. We are confident that Poro will become an important player for our current and future team.”
