Lucas Moura confident of more first team opportunities at Tottenham Hotspur

 
sbobet24 We didn’t see nearly as much of Lucas Moura as we thought we would last season. Purchased in the January transfer window from PSG, Lucas came to Spurs as a potential superstar who never quite fulfilled his promise, but with a bucket full of talent and an opportunity to re-establish his bonafides in a new league and at a new club.However, minutes were hard to come by for the Brazilian speedster. Lucas played only 536 minutes in the second half of the season, 208 in the Premier League. His lone goal came in the FA Cup at Rochdale. Many fans were left scratching their heads wondering why Spurs spent all this money to leave a player like Lucas on the bench.

But Lucas’ slow introduction to Premier League football seems to have been the plan all along. We already know that new players at Tottenham almost require a full preseason under Mauricio Pochettino to acclimate to his style of play and the tempo. Joining in January only made the transition to life in England more difficult as he faced the prospects of competing with an established starting XI.In an interview with Brazilian outlet Lance!, Lucas basically confirmed all of this, saying that his opening months at Spurs were more about acclimation than minutes, and suggesting that he knew what he was getting into right from the beginning.

sbobet24 “My first months at Tottenham were to adapt to the new league, to the city, to the climate of a new country. But it was quiet, everyone welcomed me very well, I already knew [Serge] Aurier, with whom I had played in PSG. They treated me very well, the environment is very cool. It was easy to adapt and I am very happy to be wearing the shirt of a great team, and to play in the Premier League, which was a great dream. It’s a great opportunity in my life.“I knew it would be difficult. I arrived at the window mid-season, and there were not so many signings. When I arrived the team was already in place, fighting for the first team places, they were already well into the Champions League. It is very difficult to get there and to be a starter. The expectation was to get there, to adapt, to know the environment, the new teammates. Now, it’s time to take advantage of the preseason, start strong, and be able to clinch a starting spot this season.

“The expectation is to start well, go strong and fight for a place in the starting team. The team is very good with great players, but the season is long with many games. Surely I will have many opportunities. I need to take advantage of the chances that will appear.”This is very encouraging to read, and is actually a bit of a relief. It suggests to me that Lucas understood that his opportunities would be limited in the spring of 2018, and that his primary goal was to get settled and learn about the system. In a way, it was an extension of Spurs’ preseason — bonding with his new teammates, learning the language, learning the tactics. He seemed to know that he wouldn’t play much, but that with hard work he’d have a good foundation to which to build upon in order to challenge for a first team spot this coming fall. sbobet24

Gareth Southgate says England captain Harry Kane understands the 'bigger picture'
 
sbobet 789 Gareth Southgate says he was impressed by England captain Harry Kane's reaction to being left out of Thursday's 1-0 loss to Belgium.Kane scored five goals in England's opening two wins and leads the race for the World Cup Golden Boot.

But, with England already through to the last-16, Southgate decided the Belgium match was an opportunity to rest first-choice players and give the other squad members some game-time.Kane did not even get a look-in off the bench and Southgate said: "I felt the need to sit with him, but he was brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

"He totally understood, 100 percent team-first.
sbobet 789 "He said 'look, I know everyone says I want the Golden Boot - of course it's something I want to do - but the main thing is getting the team through the first knockout'."He was excellent on that, showed real leadership and understanding of the big picture."

Kane will be back in the side on Tuesday night, when England will face Colombia in what Southgate has dubbed their "biggest match in a decade".Southgate's decision to make eight changes for the Belgium game has met with a mixed response but the manager says he has more important things to worry about.

Asked if he had put himself under pressure by making so many alterations in Kaliningrad, Southgate said: "Well, maybe I have, maybe I haven't. That is the least of my concerns."The most important thing for me is the players are in the best physical condition for the game."I don't think mentally we lose anything, because they know we've made changes and they know Belgium weren't their full team as well.

"So, we're in two big matches where margins will be fine and judgement on me will be extremely harsh. That's why we're here. We want to be in those games. sbobet 789 "I wasn't so comfortable with the love-in (before the Belgium game), to be honest so, nice that there's a little bit of an edge back."
