Pau Lopez said on Twitter shortly after he signed for us that it was a dream to play in this country.
"I have dreamed of playing in England since I was a kid, but I could not imagine I could play with a team like Spurs".
WEll that dream took another step forward today as he made his first start for Tottenham in the Under-23 Premier League 2 game against Arsenal, which we lost 2-0 after being reduced to 10 men. The game was a stalemate at 0-0 at half-time but we always faced an uphill battle with 10 men.
We were 1-0 down at the time before Owens, our centre-half was shown a red for a challenge preventing an Arsenal player from bursting through our defence.
We controlled the game in the first-half and Arsenal took over in the second period to run out winners.
