Reports: How Brennan Johnson got on in last Wales game before starting Spurs training

While Brennan Johnson was unable to get on the scoresheet for Wales during the international break, his overall performance in the last game against Latvia was praised.

Wales decided to play Johnson in the lone striker role, a position that could be up for grabs at Spurs with Postecoglou already showing he is willing to rotate between Richarlison and Heung-min Son.

Johnson showed a willingness to run and press in the European Championship qualifying match, and his work in behind and with his back to goal was praised by the Welsh media.

The former Nottingham Forest man will have his very first Tottenham training session today as he travels to Hotspur Way to meet his new teammates.

It remains to be seen how soon Postecoglou will give the 22-year-old a chance to impress in the Spurs starting XI, but his ability to play anywhere across the front three will surely do him favours.

Brennan Johnson impresses with his Wales work

When reporting on Johnson’s contributions on Monday evening, WalesOnline gave the Spurs man a 7 out of 10 even though he didn’t have the biggest impact up front on his own.

The report said: “A real livewire who had a difficult task playing up front on his own.

“Had a good early chance, a one-v-one, which he skied.

“But general play, both with back to goal and running in behind, was top-notch.

“Could have been more clinical.”

WhoScored report that Johnson had 31 touches in the match, attempting three dribbles in that time. Only one of his five shots was on target and he played three key passes.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Johnson is the kind of player who impresses even when he has a poor game due to the sheer work he puts into every match, which I’m sure Postecoglou will love. Spurs have some real depth in that front line now.
