Sergio Reguilon has revealed that the Tottenham stars really enjoyed taking on non-league Marine at Rossett Park on Sunday and promised midfielder Josh Hmami a signed shirt.
The FA Cup clash was certainly a far cry from what the Spurs stars would be used to. A near-by function room that is usually hired out for parties, the Arriva Suite, became Tottenham’s changing room for the evening.
The stadium was in the middle of a residential neighbourhood in Crosby, surrounded by buildings on all sides, with fans being able to watch the game from their windows and gardens.
As expected, there was a major gulf in quality between the two sides and Mourinho’s men eased to a 5-0 victory despite taking their foot off the pedal in the second half.
The occasion was undoubtedly the biggest that Marine’s players have ever been involved in and Hmami took to social media to admit that he will never forget it for the rest of his life.
He also requested a signed shirt from Reguilon and the Spaniard was more than happy to oblige.
It was a great experience for us as well. Football is way more than just fancy stadiums ⚽️❤️. It will be my pleasure to sign it for you 🤝 https://t.co/POO7fFT1CB

These kinds of matches are what the magic of the cup is all about. It is brilliant to see the likes of Reguilon, who would not be used to such matches, embracing the occasion.
