Tottenham Hotspur's Clinton Njie made his first appearance for the club in a 3-1 win against Qarabag in the Europa League.

Clinton Njie has told Tottenham Hotspur's official website that it was a 'great moment' for him to make his debut against Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Njie came on as a late substitute, with Spurs leading 2-1, and aided the cause as the Lilywhites extended their advantage through Erik Lamela to seal victory.

It was a nice way for Njie to start life as a Spurs player, and he went public with his gratitude to the supporters in attendance at White Hart Lane for being so encouraging. 

“It’s a great moment for me!” Njie said. “The Spurs fans here are very encouraging and they are always behind the players so for me it’s been a good experience.

“It was a good match because after 1-0 we came back into it and scored three goals.

“When I came on at 2-1 we were still in control but in football you never know what can happen and there’s always the possibility for either team to score, but we scored again so I think we did a good job.

“I’m satisfied with the victory, it was a good start. I think we deserved to win.”

Although Spurs won the match, their victory wasn't as comfortable as many were expecting it to be.

Spurs went behind early on to a penalty kick, but they fought back with two goals from Heung Min-Son before Lamela rounded off the triumph. 

It was a gentle introduction for Njie, who was making his first appearance for the club since arriving from Lyon earlier in the summer.

If the Cameroonian is utilised this weekend, he may not have such a comfortable ride, though, as Spurs are preparing to face Crystal Palace on Sunday, in what looks like a tough Premier League test.
