Confirmed: Tottenham star out of FA Cup clash v Newport
It has been confirmed by Tottenham that new signing Lucas Moura is not eligible to make his debut for the club in their FA Cup replay with Newport on Wednesday.
As the player wasn’t registered before the first game he can’t take part in the replay and Spurs fans will have to wait a while longer to see him in action.
The FA Cup replay with Newport plays out at Wembley on Wednesday night, after the League Two almost stunned the Premier League giants at their home ground.
A late goal from Harry Kane saved their blushes though and give Pochettino’s men another chance to book their passage into the fifth round.
