The Tottenham Hotspur prospect scored a long-range stunner on Saturday.
It was a horrific day for Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, but the same isn’t true for one of their young prospects.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side followed up their demoralising 7-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich by losing 3-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday.
In addition to that, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for two months [ESPN] after suffering a dislocated elbow in the error that gifted Brighton the opening goal.
Yep, a day – and a week – to forget for the North Londoners, but one to remember for young Jack Roles.
The 20-year-old midfielder, who Pochettino loaned to Cambridge United this past summer, scored a stunning 35-yard goal in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Macclesfield Town.
It was his second goal in eight League Two appearances for United this season and here’s how Tottenham fans reacted to the wonder strike.

Consequence of their shock defeat at The Amex, Pochettino’s side are 13 points behind Liverpool in the Premier League which, having broken the club’s transfer record on £63 million Tanguy Ndombele, really puts the pressure on the Argentine.
