It was much awaited night for Tottenham in Serbia yesterday, and cherry-on-the-cake was full debut for summer recruit Giovani Lo Celso, who not only did put in an sensational performance donning the Spurs crest but also opened the scoring for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, kick starting what turned out to be 4-0 thumping.
It certainly was a dream debut for young Giovani, the Argentine was decisive and webbing off passes was big feature of his play and his statistics from last night just equally prove his excellence.
