Kenyan international Victor Wanyama featured for the entire 90 minutes as his new team Tottenham Hotspurs played to a 1 – 1 draw with Everton, the match marking his competitive debut and despite coming from a losing position to pick a point, he was still disappointed.
Spurs, and Wanyama, started badly in the match, conceding a fifth minute goal after a free kick conceded by the midfielder but he is glad at their response in the second half and notes on the club’s official website, that they improved after their half time talk.
“It was okay. It wasn’t the way I expected it to be but we live to fight another day. I expected three points. We were on top in the second half. We started badly but in the second half we were the better side and had a few chances. On another day we could have taken three points.
“We were a bit slow to join the attack and we were losing the second balls. We were too far from each other and we weren’t compact. The manager made his point clear at half-time – he wanted us to go and do more. He wanted us to be compact and fight for every ball and in the second half we did that and showed a significant improvement,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com.
