There was an FA Cup match in England’s national stadium, but somehow nobody who wasn’t actually at the game got to see it. That’s stupid and ridiculous, but it is what it is. Tottenham overcame a scoreless first half to win 3-0 in the FA Cup third round, behind a brace from Harry Kane and a long range blast from “Super” Jan Vertonghen, his first goal since 2015.
While the game wasn’t televised anywhere on earth, there WERE BBC television cameras there, and we found the highlight package. Here’s all the action that you couldn’t see at home, because England doesn’t know how to television.
The only thing that would make today better is if Arsenal somehow also lost in the cup.
...Wait, what? LOL.
The fourth round FA Cup draw will be held Monday evening in Coventry, immediately after the Brighton-Crystal Palace match. That should be around 7:15 pm BST (3:15 pm ET).
