Son Heung-min’s best friend returns after recovering from an injury.
The return of Brazilian striker Lucas Moura, who played a key role when Tottenham won second place in the UEFA Champions League in the 2018/19 season, is imminent.
Tottenham won 2-1 in an away game against Arsenal in the Premier League 2 held in London, England on the 28th. Premier League 2 is a kind of second-team league that mainly participates in players under the age of 21.
In the 2022/23 season, players born after January 1, 1999 can participate, but one goalkeeper and three field players per team can participate regardless of age restrictions.
Tottenham conceded the opening goal, but later scored two goals to win the match.
In the game that day, after Moura started and played the first half, he tied the score and was replaced at the start of the second half, drawing attention.
In the 26th minute of the first half, when Tottenham were trailing 0-1, Moura lightly connected a right-footed volley from the front of the penalty area with a cross from the right, scoring a goal and high-fiving young players. 스포츠토토
Moura has struggled with a calf injury since the beginning of this season. He never played a full 90 minutes, and disappeared after playing a few minutes before the end of the match against Liverpool and Leeds United right before the World Cup.
He was even rumored to be transferring to Everton, but once he played two Premier League games, the possibility of getting a chance at Tottenham increased for the time being. Of course, there are opinions that this day’s appearance was a showcase for transfer.
Moura is well known to domestic fans for his strong performance with Son Heung-min and Kane four years ago, including a hat-trick in the away game against Ajax in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season, putting the team in the final for the first time ever.
Moura’s return will likely put him in competition with Tottenham’s recent loan signing, Arnaud Danzuma.
