Kane scores but does not prevent Tottenham defeat in Conference League | turn on conference

He did a big deal in the Conference League! This Thursday, Tottenham lost 2-1 to Mura, from Slovenia, and it got really complicated in the competition. Now, the Spurs occupy second place, behind Rennes, and no longer have a chance of ranking as the leaders of the group, needing to win the next match to advance in the phase.

In this tournament, only the top finishers guarantee direct place in the final stage. In the event of a victory over the French in the next round, Antonio Conte’s team will finish as runner-up and will have to compete in a knockout against the third-placed groups of the Europa League.

Tottenham started the game off. Mura dominated and after 11 minutes opened the scoring with Horvat, who invaded the area, dribbled Davinson Sánchez and hit placed. 20 minutes later, another casualty for the English team: Ryan Sessegnon, who already had a yellow card, was yellowed again after a violent challenge.

In the second half, Lucas Moura and Son entered and gave the team a new face. The Brazilian passed to Harry Kane, who, after cavadinha, left everything the same. But, in the last minute of the game, already in stoppage time, Marosa scored his, confirming the defeat of the Spurs.
