Man of the Match: 'Classy' Tottenham player shines for his country last night, helps them to vital win

Tottenham Hotspur wing-back Ivan Perisic shined for Croatia last night and helped them to a vital win. 

The ‘classy’ Perisic has enjoyed a decent start to his Spurs career and has already provided three assists in seven appearances. 

The 33-year-old has produced some brilliant moments, particularly from wide areas with his pinpoint crossing.

‘Classy’ Perisic shines for country last night 

Perisic was part of the Croatia side which beat Austria 3-1 and was the standout performer based on the statistics. 

The wing-back took three shots, hitting the bar with one effort, and was only dispossessed once in the entire game, according to WhoScored

He also made three tackles and provided one assist with a pinpoint delivery to set-up substitute Marko Livaja. 

Perisic was given an 8.5 rating by WhoScored, the closest player to this was former Spurs man Luka Modric, who was handed a rating of 7.6 by the statistics site. 

The Croatian veteran helped his side secure an important three points which kept them at the top of their Nations League group.

Perisic is proving to be a great coup for Spurs after making the switch from Inter on a free transfer this summer. 

Conte will love to see his player putting in Man of the Match displays just days before the north London derby. 

Spurs will be hoping Perisic can carry this form into the weekend as they look to maintain their unbeaten start against bitter rivals Arsenal.
