Mauricio Pochettino said he felt like crying after watching Tottenham’s new stadium finally host its first football match.
The 62,000-seat arena, which was due to open last summer, held its first official test event ahead of a proposed April 3 opening date when the club’s Under-18s side took on Southampton on Sunday, with Spurs’ youngsters winning 3-1.
J’Neil Bennett made history when he became the first scorer at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, setting his side on the way to victory in the 11th minute with a lovely curling effort from the left. Harvey White and Dilan Markanday also notched for Spurs while Kornelius Hansen became the first opposition player to score when he bagged for Saints.
