Wanyama: My team-mates told me not to shoot


Victor Wanyama has said in the aftermath of his wonder-strike against Liverpool on Sunday, that his teammates had told him never to shoot again after some below per efforts recently.

Wanyama came on for Moussa Dembele in the 79th minute of our 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield and inside two minutes of being on the pitch struck a thunderbolt from almost 25 yards out to pull his side level at 1-1.

“I have had several shots at goal since I returned and some of the lads were not happy and they said that I should not be shooting again but i said to myself that I would continue shooting and one day it will get into the back of the net and that day was today,” Wanyama joked speaking to Spurs TV after the game.

Harry Kane, who scored a late penalty joining an elite list of Premier League players to reach 100 league goals, also shared in Wanyama’s sentiments.

Kane said: He’s proved us wrong! He had a few shots recently and they have all gone to the corner flag and we told him not to shoot. But fair play to him he stuck it for us today and he pulled us one of the best strikes I have seen. I probably haven’t seen a better one in my career to be fair,”

Wanyama has had a stop-start return to the Spurs first team since fully recovering from a knee injury that put him out for four months and is yet to be named in the starting 11 for a Premier League match, so perhaps his strike will give Mauricio Pochettino food for thought.
