Argentina suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Brazil in the Copa America semi-finals in the early hours of this morning, with goals from Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino handing the hosts a valuable victory.
Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth was in action after putting in an impressive shift against Venezuela in the quarter-finals, and while he could have done better for the Brazilians’ second goal, he didn’t have a poor game.
The Spurs’ man most memorable moment of the game was an exquisite piece of skill that left Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho bamboozled.
Foyth vs Coutinho, that was dirty???

Makes sense tbf, he’s not complete at fault for the goal. Otherwise had a good game.

Could he be a good option at right back?

He has shown glimpse of this last year with Tottenham
He might be slight slow or not explosive ? enough for my taste to be a fullback in the BPL, BUT he definitely have the flair to be a playmaker

The 21-year-old is slowly establishing himself as a key player for both club and country, and he will be hoping to force his way into manager Mauricio Pochettino’s first XI next season.
