Tottenham duo Giovani Lo Celso and Juan Foyth both started for Argentina as they edged out Brazil 1-0 away from home on Friday.

It was Lionel Messi who came up with the only goal in the game in the 13th minute, with the visitors defending quite resolutely to retain a clean sheet.

While it was a great result for the Spurs duo, Foyth did have one really bad moment in the game. He gave the ball away inside his own penalty area attempting a piece of skill that eventually led to a penalty for the home side.

Thankfully, Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus missed from the spot for Brazil to spare Foyth’s blushes.

Some Spurs fans were left unimpressed by the defender’s mistake and insisted that he is too much of a liability to be trusted to start every week for the club.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to his performance against Brazil:

Apart from that momentary lapse of concentration, I thought Foyth did well in the game. That inclination to play himself out of trouble is something the defender has to stamp out of his game. However, I still believe he is an extremely promising option at full back and has all the ingredients to become a top player.
