Tottenham played Crystal Palace today. It was a lovely day in Chicago, with temps in the mid-20s with a crisp feeling in the air.
Watching with Chicago Spurs, as I usually do, was a terrific time as always.
Yet…today was different.
Dele Alli, an England international and 19-year old midfielder for Tottenham, had a sensational goal for Spurs. Magnificent, thrilling, fantastic, superb. Whatever adjective you use will suffice. This goal was a thing of beauty. AND, to add to Alli’s goal, one of my Spurs faves – the Belgian Nacer Chadli – also netted a wonderful strike of a goal. Although Chadli’s had power and finesse, Alli’s had power, finesse, technique, and was just something out of this world.
See for yourself. Wow.
