Spurs under 18’s 2-1 Millwall: (match report)
Our under 18’s had the battle of their lives on Monday evening at the Den, when Matt Wells side took on Millwall in the third round of the FA youth cup. Our lads have taken on and beaten some of the finest under 18 sides in the country so far this season however, it was category two academy side Millwall who came the closest to ending Spurs’ impressive unbeaten run. It was a proper cup tie and Millwall gave their all against Spurs, pressing aggressively and showing that hunger in their belly. This prestigious youth competition is the one that every team dreams of winning and as expected Spurs put out a strong team against Millwall, with Paris Maghoma and Troy Parrott all starting. Our lads never really got into full flow and it was an uncharacteristically nervous looking performance from Spurs for large parts of the game. That may have been down to the occasion or the fact that they were playing in an unfamiliar ground in front of a crowd of over 700 spectators. After a fairly disappointing opening half an hour of the match Spurs had been unable to muster any real goalscoring chances, and Millwall’s rough approach to the game had clearly unsettled them. Matt Wells side were stunned in the 34th minute when the ‘ Lions ’ took a surprise lead through their caption Billy Mitchell whose 25 yard thunderbolt caught our goalkeeper Joshua Oluwayemi by surprise. A scrappy second half ensued as the home team kept out Spurs’ potent attacking players. Chances came and went for both sides particularly Tottenham who just couldn’t seem to break down the Millwall defence. However, Spurs’ hard work and grit and determination, made sure that the Lilywhites weren’t on the end of a cup upset thanks to substitute J’Neil Bennett’s last gasp equaliser in the third minute of stoppage time, to take the game to extra time. Spurs were the better team in extra time as former Spurs man Chris Perry’s side began to tire. After some good work from Troy Parrott the Irishman set up Rodel Richards on 94 minutes to put us ahead. And despite the best efforts of the ‘ Lions ’ our heroic lads did enough to see out the game and book their place in the fourth round of the competition, where they will face Arsenal away.
Although we changed formation and shape several times throughout the game Spurs lined up in the familiar 4-3-2-1 formation, with Joshua Oluwayemi starting in goal for Matt Wells side. Maxwell Statham started the game at right back while Binks and Lyons-Foster started in the middle, with Cirkin playing at left back. Harvey White and our captain Armando Shashoua manned the midfield and the attacking line of Markanday, Maghoma and Richards all started behind the inform Troy Parrott who led the line. Spurs got the cup tie underway at the Den in front of a big crowd for youth football standards. After losing the ball early on in the game midfielder Harvey White was dispossessed by Millwall’s Samuel Skeffington inside his own half. The Millwall winger tried his luck from range with a powerful low effort which ended up deflecting off of Lyons-Foster and behind for a corner kick. The ‘ Lions ’ were making their mark on the game, making a number of strong crunching challenges on the Spurs players during the opening stages of the match. After advancing on a promising run down the left flank full back Dennis Cirkin had a low cross into the Millwall penalty area cleared by Hayden Muller. Shortly afterwards our captain Armando Shashoua was the victim of a painful challenge by Reuben Duncan. And a matter of moments later Shashoua was given a yellow card for a pull back on Jayden Davis. The home team weren’t afraid to run at Spurs as shown by fullback Junior Tiensa who was allowed to advance down the left flank unopposed before getting his shot away on the edge of the penalty area. Lyons-Foster managed to block Tiensa’s powerful effort meaning that it was an easy save for Oluwayemi to make as he held the ball. Spurs had a good chance at the other end after Rodel Richards darted into the oppositions penalty area, beating his man in the process. Richards kept good balance before passing the ball to Parrott in the centre of the box however, the Dubliners low effort was comfortably stopped by Millwall goalkeeper Joseph Wright. Spurs threatened again shortly afterwards this time through the skipper Armando Shashoua.
After receiving Dilan Markanday’s pass down the right flank Shashoua surged forward, holding off Duncan as he burst into the six yard box before seeing his pass towards Parrott cut out by Besart Toppalloj who put the ball out for a corner kick. Harvey White’s resulting delivery deceived everybody inside the danger zone as it flew across the face of the goal. Spurs managed their first shot on target of the game shortly afterwards through Paris Maghoma. After receiving the ball from Cirkin, Maghoma tried his luck from long range and his well struck stinging effort was held by Joseph Wright in the Millwall goal. The ‘ Lions ’ high pressing was causing us problems and it was preventing us from playing our usual passing game to effect. Makeshift right back Maxwell Statham did well to cut out George Alexander’s cross before it could get to Harry Taylor at the back post as Millwall started to pump the ball into the Tottenham penalty area a lot more frequently. Then in the 34th minute of the game the home team took a surprise lead through their captain Billy Mitchell whose long range thunderbolt had stunned Oluwayemi in the Spurs goal. It was a goal which came out of nowhere. After Statham had lost possession to Harry Taylor the attacking midfielder passed the ball to Mitchell who decided to have a pop some 25 yards out from goal. And the Millwall captain struck it so sweetly and it flew into the top left hand corner of Oluwayemi’s goal, hitting the cross bar on its way in, 0-1. Paris Maghoma could be seen frantically urging on his teammates in the aftermath of the goal to try and get them to respond, and the 17 year old almost managed to do that himself straight from the restart. After playing a quick one two with Richards on the edge of the Millwall penalty area Maghoma curled an effort towards Wright’s right hand corner but the midfielders effort had too much curl on it, and it flew just wide. Luis Binks gave away a free kick right on the edge of the Spurs penalty area after fouling Samuel Skeffington. The resulting free kick was taken by Reuben Duncan whose well executed curling effort flashed inches wide of the Spurs goal.
The flawless Lyons-Foster cleared Jayden Taylor’s menacing cross a matter of moments later as the visitors continued to maintain their high press. In first half stoppage time Harvey White had to make an important block to prevent Hayden Muller’s header from going in, after the defender had attacked Skeffington’s corner kick in what was the last bit of action from the first half. The ‘ Lions ’ got the second half underway at the Den as Chris Perry’s side looked to protect their slender lead. However, the home team came close to doubling their advantage early on in the half through Junior Tiensia. A well worked move from Millwall stemmed from Markanday giving the ball to Jayden Davis who went on a surging run down the left flank before passing the ball to George Alexander, who cut the ball back for Tiensia inside the penalty area. However, the fullbacks first time effort was blocked by Cirkin before Oluwayemi punched clear Skeffington’s resulting corner kick. The Tottenham goalkeeper did well a couple of minutes later to claim an inviting ball into the box from Jayden Davis. Matt Wells side were starting to take more risks as the game progressed, after the tigerish Troy Parrott picked up Luis Binks’ pass down the left flank the striker whipped a low cross into the Millwall penalty area, in which Markanday was so close to making contact with before Wright smothered the ball. Troy Parrott had a shot on goal blocked by Muller shortly afterwards as Spurs continued to look for openings in the Millwall defence. Although Chris Perry’s side were playing with more caution they still created some good chances. Duncan’s hopeful long ball over the Spurs defence managed to pick out Alexander down the right flank however, Lyons-Foster produced a perfect sliding challenge on the Millwall centre forward before then blocking Skeffington’s resulting cross. However, the ball did come back out to Alexander who tried a speculative effort on the volley which ended up dipping just over Oluwayemi’s crossbar.
George Alexander came close to finding the back of the net again a couple of minutes later. This time the second year scholar tried his luck from long range with a powerful low effort at goal, which the diving Oluwayemi somehow managed to save and tip over the crossbar. The 17 year old then came out to confidently claim Reuben Duncan’s resulting corner kick. The young Lilywhites continued to put pressure on the Millwall defence as they went in search of a leveller. Dilan Markanday had a brilliant opportunity to draw Spurs level after he was picked out at Joseph Wright’s back post by Cirkin who whipped an inviting ball into the danger zone. However, the unmarked Markanday didn’t get his angles quite right and his header went wide. Maxwell Statham was brought off shortly afterwards for winger J’Neil Bennett who made his return from injury as Wells looked to inject some pace and trickery into the game. Shortly after coming on Binks found Bennett down the left flank and the 16 year old whipped a teasing ball into the danger zone which was cleared by Tiensia. The young winger was providing Spurs with an all important spark and only a couple of moments after he whipped a promising cross into the danger zone, Bennett was involved once again in another Spurs attack. White passed the ball to Bennett down the left wing and the substitute darted away from Millwall fullback Lewis West before finding Markanday in the box with a whipped cross. Markanday met Bennett’s cross on the volley but his well struck effort was well saved by Wright who managed to clutch the ball. Luis Binks blocked George Alexander’s cross at the other end and the Spurs players went in search of a penalty a couple of minutes later. White sprayed the ball to Bennett out on the left hand side and the wingers cross was handled by Billy Mitchell inside the Millwall penalty area before being tipped behind for a corner by Wright. However, the referee Ricky Adams waived away any claims that the Spurs players had for a penalty. The game had developed into a really competitive affair as Spurs upped their tempo and looked to outplay the category two academy side. Joshua Oluwayemi comfortably saved Reuben Duncan’s effort from long range, before Luis Binks went into the referees book for a foul on Samuel Skeffington.
Billy Mitchell blazed an effort wide from long range for the home side only a couple of moments before Hayden Muller headed Duncan’s cross wide of Oluwayemi’s goal. Spurs were becoming more desperate by each passing minute as Millwall continued to press and defend tightly. After being found inside the oppositions penalty area by Bennett, Parrott passed the ball to Maghoma on the edge of the box, but the midfielders effort went well wide of Wright’s goal. Spurs had another claim for a penalty after Richards was tripped inside the box by Muller, before Bennett whipped another teasing ball into the six yard box which this time only just deceived Markanday at the back post. Midfielder Harvey White lost possession to Mitchell who quickly shifted it out to Alexander on the right wing. The Millwall strikers resulting cross was volleyed a matter of inches wide of the Spurs goal by Jayden Davis at the back post. Dennis Cirkin cleared Reuben Duncan’s free kick shortly afterwards as the Spurs defence continued to hold. However, the young fullback gave the ball away to Duncan a couple of minutes later. Duncan passed the ball to Alexander who went on driving run through the middle of the park before being intercepted by Binks on the edge of the penalty area. Captain Armando Shashoua was brought off a couple of moments later for Maurizio Pochettino, as Troy Parrott took the captains armband. A clever long pass from Harvey White almost managed to set Paris Maghoma through on goal. Spurs made another substitution in the 85th minute when they brought off Brooklyn Lyons-Foster in place of Maximus Tainio. Matt Wells was frantically urging his young players on from the touch line as Spurs started to throw everything at the Millwall defence, as we reached the final stages of the game. The skipper Troy Parrott was a constant thorn in the Millwall defences side and the young Dubliner came close to netting a late equaliser after being slipped through inside the penalty area by Markanday. With his back to goal, Parrott did so well to hold off Besart Topalloj inside the area before turning away from his man and firing an effort at goal. However, Parrott’s powerful effort was spectacularly saved by the alert Joseph Wright.
Luis Binks forced a comfortable save out of Wright from a corner shortly afterwards when he went to meet Maghoma’s corner. However, Binks‘ header took a deflection off of a Millwall player and this made it a comfortable save for Wright to make. Harvey White delivered two corners into the penalty area successfully before he struck lucky the third time deep into second half stoppage time. Spurs had almost every player in the box as Harvey White whipped the ball into the danger zone. Richards attempted to attack the ball but he missed it, and it came out to Bennett at the back post who steadied himself before smashing the ball beyond Wright and into the back of the net, 1-1. This sparked jubilant scenes of celebration amongst the Spurs players and substitutes who celebrated right in front of the away end, it was a wonderful scene. However, Spurs did have one late scare after Luis Binks conceded a free kick out on the right flank following a foul on Alexander in the 95th minute. Luckily for Spurs, the newly introduced Sean O’Brien’s delivery was headed narrowly over Oluwayemi’s crossbar by Besart Topalloj, bringing normal time to an end. Matt Wells and his lads all huddled around in a circle on the pitch prior to the first half of extra time. Ryan Mason could be seen giving advice to midfielder Harvey White before Spurs got the first half underway. The fitness of both sides would play a telling part in this cup tie. Spurs had the first chance of the half when J’Neil Bennett received Markanday’s pass on the left wing, he surged past Lewis West before cutting inside and curling an effort wide of the goal from the edge of the penalty area. Maurizio Pochettino then saw his cross gathered by Joseph Wright shortly afterwards. However, just a matter of moments later Spurs took the lead for the first time in the game through Rodel Richards just four minutes into the half. Matt Wells side had started extra time brilliantly and the Spurs coach would have been delighted with the move leading up to our second goal of the game.
The move started with Maximus Tainio who passed the ball to Markanday who spotted the run of Parrott down the right hand side of the penalty area, before slipping the ball into the Irishman. Parrott kept his composure in the box and as Wright came rushing out to get to the ball, the Spurs striker rounded the Millwall goalkeeper before cutting the ball back for Richards to tap home in the centre of the box, 2-1. The ‘ Lions ’ had players going down with cramp and it was evident that they were struggling to keep up with the pace of the much fitter Spurs lads. However, the ‘ Lions ’ came desperately close to making an instant response straight from the restart. Harry Taylor’s curling effort from long range had Oluwayemi worried and although the Tottenham goalkeeper managed to make the save he wasn’t able to clutch the ball and it ended up hitting the post before he went to smother the ball. Markanday and Bennett were involved in a clever move a couple of minutes later. Markanday passed the ball to Bennett who ran down the left wing before crossing the ball back to Markanday who had made a run into the six yard box. However, the 17 year olds first time volley with the outside of his boot ended up going wide of the Millwall goal. Spurs then had another glorious chance to put the game to bed following another incisive attack. Maghoma passed the ball to Parrott who spotted and picked out Pochettino down the right hand side of the Millwall penalty. The winger found himself one on one with Wright but his powerful effort was saved by the Millwall goalkeeper who had closed Pochettino down well. Spurs were now in full control of the game. Another nice move from the Lilywhites resulted in Harvey White picking out Parrott with a nice pass on the edge of the Millwall box. Parrott chested the ball down for Markanday whose powerful low effort was well saved by the alert Joseph Wright. And the Millwall goalkeeper was called into action again, this time to deny Rodel Richards effort after the forward had received Bennett’s pass down the left side of the Millwall penalty area, bringing to an end the first half of extra time.
Millwall got the second half underway and we weren’t long into the half when Wells brought Jubril Okedina for Rodel Richards to bolster our defence. An early free kick for Millwall resulted in Lewis West picking out Skeffington inside the Spurs box however, the Millwall wingers effort on goal was blocked heroically by Paris Maghoma. Oluwayemi made a fabulous diving save a couple of moments later to deny Harry Taylor’s curling effort on goal, the Spurs goalkeeper hurt himself following that save and he had to receive some treatment from the Spurs physios. Billy Mitchell’s long ball up to substitute Sean O’Brien was then lobbed over Oluwayemi’s goal as the home team continued to put up a brave fight. The Tottenham goalkeeper then did well to gather Jay Barton’s teasing cross. The combative Paris Maghoma went down injured a couple of minutes later after he made an excellent sliding challenge on Lewis West out on the right wing. The Millwall players and fans were not happy with Maghoma for going to ground at such a later stage in the game and they let him know it. J’Neil Bennett continued to look lively down the left wing, the 16 year old played in Parrott who got away from Billy Mitchell before attempting to find Markanday at the back post with a sublime cross with the outside of his boot, it was however, cut out by Muller who subsequently made the clearance. Parrott then went straight down the other end to help out the Tottenham defence and to block Samuel Skeffington’s shot on goal. Spurs broke down the other end through Cirkin who passed the ball to Bennett down the left wing. The pacy winger beat Lewis West with ease as he continued on his galavanting run before picking out Markanday inside the danger zone. However, the 17 year olds low first time effort was saved once again by Joseph Wright. Dennis Cirkin blocked Harry Taylor’s shot at the other end of the pitch as the clock ticked down. It should have been 3-1 to Spurs after Markanday was played through on goal by Parrott before calmly tucking the ball past Wright and into the bottom right hand corner of the goal. However, Markanday was cruelly denied his goal by the linesman on the far side who wrongly adjudged the Spurs winger to have been in an offside position when the pass from Parrott was made.
Finland under 19 international Maximus Tainio went into the book for a foul on Jay Barton in second half stoppage time in what was to be the final piece of action from a dramatic cup tie. Matt Wells side battled so hard to get the win, they were resilient and they showed great team spirit. Super sub J’Neil Bennett changed the game with his pace and trickery down the left wing, but it was a great team effort which saw us overcome the ‘ Lions ’ who despite their very best efforts were unable to keep up with Spurs in extra time. Spurs will contest a north London derby against Arsenal in the fourth round of this famous competition. A date for that game hasn’t been set yet, but I would be very surprised if it wasn’t played at the the Emirates stadium. Meanwhile our under 18’s will play their final game of 2018 this Saturday when they travel up to Darlington to face Middlesbrough in their final group game of this season premier league cup. A win for Spurs would send them through to the quarter finals as group winners.
- Joshua Oluwayemi: The second year scholar had an excellent game between the sticks on Monday night. Oluwayemi made five important stops against Millwall in total and he had an excellent game all round against the South London club. Oluwayemi could have done absolutely nothing to deny Billy Mitchell’s stunning first half goal, but the 17 year old made a string of really impressive saves to deny Millwall from extending their lead. The most notable save was the one to deny Harry Taylor’s curling effort on goal. The second year scholar also impressed with how confidently he dealt with crosses and corner kicks. In addition, his distribution was good under pressure and he managed the game well, e.g falling to the floor with the ball during the latter stages of the game, as Spurs looked to hold onto their 2-1 lead.
- Maxwell Statham: Operating at right back Statham completed 54 minutes of the match. The 18 year old made some nice strong challenges and he dealt well with the threat posed by both Jayden Davis and Junior Tiensia down the left hand side.
- Brooklyn Lyons-Foster: The ball playing centre half didn’t put a foot wrong on his first game back from injury for Matt Wells side. Lyons-Foster read the game to perfection alongside Luis Binks. His passing was nice and crisp and he looked very comfortable on the ball, especially in high pressure situations. However, Lyons-Foster read the game really well and he anticipated danger with precision. He made a superb sliding challenge to prevent George Alexander from being allowed a clean route through to goal during the second half. Lyons-Foster always made sure that he was in the right place at the right time and him and Binks complemented each other throughout the match.
- Luis Binks: I thought that the England under 18 international who was operating at RCB on Monday night, put in a fantastic performance at the back. Binks‘ understanding of the game was top class, and the first year scholar was ever present across the back four. He made many important defensive interventions as well as clearances. And like Lyons-Foster he was always in position and this was really important for Spurs. The 17 year old was a leader of men against Millwall and without him I don’t think that we would have taken the game to extra time.
- Dennis Cirkin: The left back who would later go onto fill in at centre half had a really good game at the Den. Cirkin got up and down the left flank well and he did a good at dealing with the threat posed by Millwall winger Samuel Skeffington down that side of the pitch. Cirkin went on some nice attacking forays of his own and he whipped some promising balls into the danger zone. It was a very well balanced performance from the 16 year old.
- Harvey White: I thought that the 17 year old put in a very industrious performance in the centre of midfield. White kept the ball moving and made some clever passes as well as showing a real tenacity about his game. He made some important blocks and interceptions in and around the Tottenham penalty area and he filled in well for defenders who were out of position. The midfielder set up J’Neil Bennett’s dramatic late equaliser from his corner kick to get his tenth assist of the season. White showed just how versatile he is during our cup tie with Millwall. White made a particularly important block to prevent Hayden Muller’s header from going in, in the first half.
- Armando Shashoua: Our under 18’s captain fantastic played alongside Harvey White in the centre of midfield. Shashoua who completed 78 minutes of the game was painfully studded early on in the match by Reuben Duncan. However, the 18 year old went onto put in a real shift for the team. The midfielder worked tirelessly to influence the game and he could often be seen drifting out onto the right flank where he combined well with winger Dilan Markanday. Armando went on some nice forward runs through the middle and he also impressed with his ball retention and hard work at tracking back, this drew rapturous applause from the Spurs fans in the away end.
- Dilan Markanday: The in form right winger was one of our sides most creative players against Millwall and on another day he could have scored a hat-trick. Markanday made some good runs down the right channel and he constantly made himself available inside the six yard box. The 17 year old had a number of efforts saved by Joseph Wright and on the time that he did manage to beat the Millwall goalkeeper he was wrongly ruled offside. I thought that Millwall’s impressive fullback Junior Tiensia protected his side of the very well. Markanday also played at right back during the latter stages of the game.
- Paris Maghoma: Maghoma managed to adapt to Monday’s cup tie really well in what was only his third appearance for the under 18 side this season. Maghoma started the game as a number ten but for large chunks of the match he was essentially playing as a holding midfielder. Maghoma adapted to the scrappy game in the same way a midfielder like Dele Alli does. He was defensively disciplined but he did make some promising runs through the middle and he impressed with his passing. Maghoma broke up play well in the centre of the park and he never stopped running. There were periods in the game when it looked as if he was playing at centre half. Like Harvey White put in a really industrious performance and he showed a real willingness to track back and help out the back four. He made a number of important blocks and interceptions and as a box to box midfielder he did a sterling job and he helped to link defence with attack. He also picked up cramp during extra time but he still maintained his excellent work rate.
- Rodel Richards: The 18 year old started the game out on the left wing although he would often cut inside and look to play through the middle. Richards grew into the game during the second half and he went on some nice runs into the Millwall penalty area. And the South Londoner ended up netting the winner after he tapped home Troy Parrott’s pass in extra time.
- Troy Parrott: My motm, see below.
- J’Neil Bennett: The speedy winger changed the game after he was brought on in the 54th minute. On his first appearance since injury, Bennett looked incredibly sharp and he terrorised Millwall fullback Lewis West down the left flank. Bennett was the spark that Spurs were so desperately lacking during the first half and he made an almost instant impact after he was introduced to the game early on in the second half. West was unable to deal with the 16 year olds pace and trickery, and although Bennett was direct he did mix things up and this caused problems for the Millwall defence. Apart from his many searing runs down the left channel Bennett whipped some delightful crosses into the danger zone and he was very unselfish a lot of the time. He also tracked back well after him and he helped Cirkin out at the back. The former QPR schoolboys biggest contribution to the game was his dramatic late leveller to take the game to extra time. He showed good composure before beating Wright at his near post in second half stoppage time. It was a very positive performance from the talented 16 year old.
- Maurizio Pochettino: Pochettino replaced Armando Shashoua in the 78th minute of the match and he played out on the right wing. Pochettino made some good runs down the channel as he looked to influence play. The 17 year old did have one good chance when he found himself one on one with Wright but he was unable to put the ball in the back of the net.
- Maximus Tainio: The Finland under 19 international replaced Lyons-Foster in the 85th minute of the game and he helped to bolster the Spurs defence, providing much needed energy for us during extra time.
- Jubril Okedina: The centre half came on in extra time to help Spurs see out the game.
My man of the match: Troy Parrott. The young Dubliner had yet another outstanding game for our under 18’s on Monday evening. Parrott proved pivotal to Spurs winning the cup tie, making an immense contribution to the game at both ends of the pitch. The tireless centre forward charged at the Millwall defence like a bull as he pressed relentlessly throughout the match. The 16 year old made some intelligent runs in and behind the Millwall defence but he also created some good chances for his teammates. It was quite incredible to see a 16 year old maintain such a high work rate even as we entered extra time. In the most Kane-esque way, Parrott covered every blade of grass and he was as good a defender as anybody else on the pitch. He would often track back 60 or so yards in order to help out the Spurs defenders at every opportunity. And as a result of this he made some really important blocks and interceptions. In addition to his outstanding defensive contribution Parrott also led the line well and the timing of his runs was equally as impressive. He had one decent chance in the first half which resulted in him forcing a relatively comfortable save out of Wright. However, it was during the second half that he started to grow into the game a lot more. He held the ball up well and he managed to be effective with his back towards goal. Parrott’s assist to set up Rodel Richards winner was well worked. He showed good composure and balance before rounding the Millwall goalkeeper inside the penalty area before unselfishly squaring the ball for Richards to tap home. That takes the first year scholars goal involvement to 20 from 20 games at youth level for Spurs this season.
