Norwich Edges Tottenham Out, Goes Through Via Penalities
Considering Tottenham’s recent form and in truth the performances since the turn of the year, not many people would have been utterly shocked by this but it was still a shock. Tottenham came into this FA cup fixture on the back of a disappointing defeat to wolves over the weekend with the chance to atleast end the season still in a trophy hunt. Defender Jan Vertonghen put the home side in front in the 13th minute and Spurs looked to be on their way through to the next round comfortably until an error by Goal keeper Vorm handed Norwich a way back into the tie.
His error allowed Drmic to score late on and force extra time. Spurs squandered a few decent chances but in the end it went to penalties. The lottery of penalties can be cruel as Gedson found out, his weak penalty sending spurs out of the FA cup in the quarter finals. Norwich will play the winner of Thursday’s game between Manchester United and Derby.
