Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Juan Foyth’s first appearance of the season.
The 21-year-old missed the start of the new campaign after suffering an ankle injury during Tottenham’s Audi Cup win against Bayern Munich in pre-season.
Despite not having played a minute of action for his club side, Foyth was selected in the starting eleven for Argentina’s friendly match against Germany.
The defender played the full 90 minutes of the 2-2 draw at Borussia Dortmund’s Westenfalenstadion.
Germany took a 2-0 lead in the first half courtesy of goals from Serge Gnabry, who humiliated Spurs last week and Kai Havertz.
Argentina came back in the second half with Lucas Alario and Lucas Ocampos both finding the back of the net.
Foyth operated at right-back in the first half and as a third central defender in the second period and looked comfortable in both positions.
Tottenham have had issues filling the right-back slot this season with Kyle Walker-Peters, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko all having played there.
Here’s how some fans reacted to Foyth’s display.
So he couldn’t play for us but he can play a full 90
