Tottenham Hotspur coasted into the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday evening, smashing Marine 5-0 away from home.
A trip to take on the non-league side in Crosby didn’t seem ideal for Spurs, and some may have been fearing a giantkilling at their expense.
Tottenham were never really in danger though, with a Carlos Vinicius hat-trick and a Lucas Moura free kick putting Spurs 4-0 up by the break.
Teenager Alfie Devine then came on to become Tottenham’s youngest-ever goalscorer with a fine finish, sealing the 5-0 victory.
This wasn’t really much of a test for Spurs, and the focus has quickly turned to Wednesday’s rearranged clash with Fulham, but there was one moment after the game that has warmed the hearts of Tottenham fans.
As the players left the field of play, Gareth Bale – who was captain when he came onto the pitch – gave the armband to coach and Spurs legend Ledley King as the pair shared a laugh.
King and Bale played together for five year at Tottenham, and have now reunited with Jose Mourinho bringing both Spurs favourites back to the club.
Fans took to Twitter to suggest the photo was ‘beautiful’, and marvelled at how Bale is loving his time back at Tottenham – even if he is nowhere near the player he was in his first spell.
