Tottenham Hotspur fans saw the hilarious side to their former player Kyle Walker having to play goalkeeper for Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Whilst Spurs were putting four goals past Red Star Belgrade, their English counterparts were involved in some heavy drama against Atlanta.


Regular goalkeeper Ederson had to come off at half-time because of injury, but with 10 minutes left on the clock, his replacement, Claudio Bravo was given a straight red.

That meant that a City outfield player had to go in between the sticks with the game level at 1-1, as Walker opted to don the gloves.

The former Spurs man made one save and stopped the opposition from putting the ball into the back of the net.

Spurs fans couldn't help but draw comparisons when their very own Harry Kane had to go in goal during the early part of his career.

Nonetheless, Tottenham fans found the whole thing hilarious viewing, as Walker ensured that his team walked away with a valuable point.
