'Outrageous': Some Tottenham fans react to footage of 19-year-old 'north London Coutinho'
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after hearing that J’Neil Bennett had scored a wondergoal out on loan at Crewe.
What’s the story?
Well, the 19-year-old joined Crewe on a short-term loan deal until January on deadline day, just days after making his Tottenham debut.
Bennett had been training with David Artell’s side this summer, and got his Crewe career off to the perfect start with a stunning long-range strike.
Footage shows the teenager cutting inside from the left flank, before smashing a phenomenal effort into the top corner.
It led to one supporter branding Bennett as the ‘north London Coutinho’ while another described the goal as an ‘outrageous’ strike.
If that’s what Bennett is capable of at such an early stage in his career, Crewe and Tottenham fans should feel very excited.
Can J’Neil Bennett follow in Harry Kane’s footsteps at Tottenham?
It’s been a while since Tottenham have seen an outstanding youngster emerge from the academy.
Since Harry Kane emerged, only Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga have become valued members of the first-team.
Oliver Skipp is also starting to emerge, after an excellent season on loan at Norwich.
Without setting the bar too high and trying to replicate Kane, Bennett should focus on Skipp and how he made use of his loan at Carrow Road.
Of course, Crewe aren’t in the Championship like Norwich were, although it’s still a platform for the winger to show his ability.
Nuno Espirito Santo clearly likes the forward, having given him some game time against Paços Ferreira to mark his Tottenham debut.
So, if he can deliver the goods for Crewe, who knows what might happen when he returns to Hotspur Way in January?
For now, let’s see what the Tottenham fans on Twitter have been saying about Bennett’s goal…
