Toby Alderweireld brings a lot of things to the Spurs defence week in week out, but goals are not usually one of them.
In fact, the centre back had not scored for 101 games for club and country until last night when he headed home against Scotland from a corner.
The last goal Toby had bagged before this was in a 7-1 win over Hull City in May 2017, funnily enough, past the same goalkeeper, David Marshall.
Let’s hope that Alderweireld can be more of an aerial threat again this season.
A third assist of the night for De Bruyne! We're not even at half-time yet. ?
Spurs defender Alderweireld rises highest to head the Man City star's corner goalwards.
