Captain John Obi Mikel, a Chelsea team-mate of Moses, was also on target for Nigeria at a packed Uyo stadium while Nabil Bentaleb scored for Algeria with an unstoppable drive.

The search for the lost heart of Tottenham Hotspur is over. It was there all the time, waiting to be found by three young footballers, Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Kane and Ryan Mason. They knew all along what it means to be Spurs and their performances in Sunday's defeat of Everton not only showed their more experienced team-mates the path to follow, they ignited and inspired the crowd.

We're not sure just how realistic this is in terms of a match situation, but it's a nice goal nonetheless. Spurs midfielder Nabil Bentaleb brought the ball controlled the ball in the air during today's training session. He added a couple of keepy-ups for good measure before volleying the ball left-footed into the net.

Tottenham Win Shows Tim Sherwood Beginning To Grow Tactically

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Tim Sherwood's squad selection had become stale and somewhat predictable. A 4-4-2 with an attacking bent was the general trend his first several matches in charge of Tottenham Hotspur. But in this match, Spurs set up in a 4-2-3-1 with the two out-and-out wingers complementing the attacking influence of Christian Eriksen in the center of the attacking midfield line.

Tottenham’s Nabil Bentaleb Is The First Of Many Potential Revelations Of The Tim Sherwood Era

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Part of the mission of former Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas was to identify the top young talent in the Spurs system and to blend them into the side. Villas-Boas did well in identifying Tom Carroll, a young midfielder with a great passing range, Andros Townsend, who was handed a full England debut last fall, and Danny Rose, a left-back who had all but been forgotten by Harry Redknapp, are two more examples.

Tim Sherwood's management style is evolving game by game. Today with the inevitable onslaught expected fromManchester United, the untested Spurs boss made two very curious tactical changes that perhaps showed his growth and bravery as a manager.

Ahead by a goal in the 64th minute, Sherwood brought on the highly-touted youngster Nabil Bentaleb in a holding midfield role.

Everton 1-1 Spurs: 5 Lilywhite Observations

1. Casting A Dubious Eye Over Tom Carroll

Carroll does have a dreamy touch, and if Premiership football were all about popping four-yard passes sideways, and backwards, and actually dispensing with boots and ball and just drawing pretty pictures of trees, then one suspects he would be revered far and wide as some sort of deity.

1. The Dembele-Shaped Hole

Carroll flitted around the periphery of things looking like a schoolboy, or a ballerina, or a schoolboy ballerina – and with about as much impact as any of the above. Where Dembele (the new improved version) would stick out his chest, grab the game by the scruff of the neck and power from deep straight through the centre of the thing, bludgeoning past all in his way be they friend or foe, Carroll, bless him, hopped and skipped and poked in an occasional dainty foot.

It's like the thing never went away. Varying degrees of huff and puff, and a smattering of invention that was far too late to be of any consequence, and without playing particularly well or badly the thing was done.

Midfield

The selection of Dier ahead of Mason was shiny and new, but the headlines were grabbed by Bentaleb's decision to rock up for work still in sunglasses and flip-flops, Hawaiin shirt on back and the distinct whiff of alcohol on his breath.

This must go down as one of the great lilywhite derby performances of recent years.

Not that that seemed to register with our heroes. Bless them, they had to play twice this week don't you know, and chug through passport control and squat into their Easyjet seats and whatnot, so it was unsurprising that a few of them looked like they were just biding time until they received a leg massage.

Bless them, Swansea genuinely are a team I would like to play every week. Like some sort of Tottenham Hostpur-lite, they really do not look the sort of troupe who like to get their shirts dirty with any of that tackling nonsense (although Chiriches and his pretty little face might beg to differ), and they would happily spend all day pinging short passes to one another if they could, even if doing so means creating all manner of difficulty for themselves in their own area, just because it all looks so pretty.

Now that's the spirit. Having attracted the opprobrium of AANP pre kick-off for the unpardonable crime of simply being Tim Sherwood, the young bean has earned himself a commemorative bust on the mantelpiece (in truth it will more likely be a sketch of a stick-man left on the window-sill – but the sentiment remains pure) for scrawling the most hilariously gung-ho teamsheet since Ardiles got a little carried away.

Like Djimi Traore proudly keeping a Champions League Winner's medal stuffed alongside the small change in his pocket, and Ian Bell possessing one hundred caps for the England cricket team, there is something that makes me shed a small tear and wonder if there but for the grace of God about the notion that, should the hosts go on and win the whole bally thing, then Paulinho will be a World Cup winner.

Spurs Bravery Not Enough

Tottenham On My Mind at related • 0 views

Spurs' endearing mixture of bravery and naivety was enough to make our loyal supporters get behind the team and for some cushion the blow of defeat. Unfortunately, it was nowhere near sufficient to win the League Cup Final.

It was a fine effort from our young team, remember one of the youngest sides ever to play in the top division up against the might of an experienced, expensive Ch****a side.
