Spurs players star in England World Cup win to prove ex-Arsenal player wrong

England won a World Cup penalty shootout for the first time ever last night.

The country went crazy, celebrating the achievement of Gareth Southgate’s side reaching the quarter-finals in Russia.

As always with England, they did it the hard way, falling behind in the shootout before two Colombia misses gave Eric Dier the chance to win it for the Three Lions – a chance he did not pass up.

And Dier was not the only Spurs player to score in the shootout. He followed Harry Kane and Kieran Trippier in dispatching their spot-kicks, with Marcus Rashford converting the other. Liverpool star Jordan Henderson was the one to miss.

And the Tottenham supporters have taken great delight in their players winning the day for England, not least because an Arsenal legend questioned whether they had the ability to win before a ball was even kicked in the tournament.

Former Gunners defender Tony Adams, speaking to the Sun, said: “You must be able to handle winning emotionally and mentally and if they don’t know how to win it, they aren’t going to win it.”
