Is it too late for Georgiou? Young Spurs winger shines for national side in 4-0 win

Several of Tottenham’s biggest stars were involved in international action on Tuesday night with all of them finding themselves on the winning side.

While Harry Kane got on the score sheet again to help England down Kosovo, both Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko started for France as they brushed Albania aside.

Meanwhile, both Son Heung-Min and Serge Aurier also captained their countries to wins over Turkmenistan and Tunisia respectively.

However, there was one other Spurs man whose terrific performance for his country has gone a bit unnoticed by fans – Anthony Georgiou.

Georgiou, who is currently on loan at Ipswich Town, was Cyprus’ stand out performer as they romped to a 4-0 win over San Marino.

He came on at half time replacing Fotios Papoulis and was a constant menace down the left side throughout the second half.

The 22-year-old eventually helped set up both the third and fourth goal, claiming an assist for the latter.

While Georgiou has no doubt shown glimpses of fantastic quality during the last few pre-season campaigns, he hasn’t done enough to convince Pochettino that he deserves to be in the first team. At 22 years of age, it looks like his chances of making it at Spurs are extremely slim at the moment even if he impresses at Ipswich.
