Posted by

After losing a two-goal lead in normal time, Tottenham beat Wolves in a shootout to advance to the Carabao Cup fourth round.

The game went to penalties after goals from Leander Dendoncker and Daniel Podence cancelled out earlier scores from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane.

In the shootout, however, Ruben Neves, Dendoncker, and Conor Coady all missed, with Bryan Gil’s penalty proving crucial for Tottenham.

Spurs travel to Burnley next.

At Molineux, French midfielder Ndombele burst into the area and turned defender Willy Boly to open the score, before captain Kane made it 2-0 after being sent through by Dele Alli on 23 minutes.

“The excellent aspects of this game are the way we create opportunities and the way we play. However, I am dissatisfied with the way we are allowing the opposition to create chances and score goals.

Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham manager, on Kane: “He has a lot more to offer, and it all comes down to the game, learning and growing together.
