On-loan Tottenham wing-back Destiny Udogie found the back of the net for Udinese, who thrashed AS Roma on Sunday evening.

Jose Mourinho’s men were unbeaten coming into the clash at the Dacia Arena and they started the better of the two teams, however, it was Udogie who struck the first blow for the home side.

The 19-year-old capitalised on a mistake by Roma’s Rick Karsdorp, who tried to chest a cross back to his goalkeeper only for Udogie to show great anticipation and stole in behind Karsdorp to find the back of the net just give minutes into the match.

The night got a lot worse for Jose Mourinho’s side, who went on the lose 4-0 with Udogie also having a hand in Udinese’s fourth goal.

The on-loan Spurs man played a perfect cross-field pass to Roberto Pereyra, who squared to Sandi Lovric, with the Slovenian putting the icing on the cake for Andrea Sottil’s men.

Udogie showed great anticipation to make the run into the box, sensing that Karsdorp might play it back to his goalkeeper. Those are the sort of lung-busting forward runs into the back post that Conte expects of his wing-backs.
