Marine boss Neil Young speaks to BBC Sport: “Very proud of them. It was always going to be tough. We have to give great credit to Jose Mourinho, he gave us great respect. I can’t ask any more of our lads. We were a bit sloppy in certain situations but we’re playing against world class footballers. It would’ve been nice to get a goal. Once they got the goal they had a spell of about ten minutes when they were really on top of us. It was great to see Tottenham up close and how well they played. I think we can be very proud of the cup run. We’ve had an eventful week. The football community and the Tottenham supporters have been incredible at a very tough time. We’re not playing at the moment and there’s a lot of non-league clubs not playing, so this is massive for us financially.”
Lucas Moura speaks to BBC Sport: “I’m very happy, today was a different day. It’s new for us, but we came here with big respect and mentality to win and I think we did well. It was a good free kick, not easy because they are very tall. I’m very happy for my friend Vinny [Vinicius]. He works very hard every day and he deserves it. Our objective this season is to win trophies. We have a very good squad and we want to fight for every trophy.”
Neil Young and his players get a deserved round of applause from the few supporters gathered outside the stadium (and those watching from their houses). The dream result never looked likely, but it’s still a night to remember for the eighth-tier club.
FULL-TIME: MARINE 0-5 TOTTENHAM
Michael Oliver brings the game to an end. It’s a dominant win for a professional, merciless Spurs team, but Marine will rightly be proud of their efforts. They made things difficult early on, but a Vinicius hat-trick, as well as goals from Lucas Moura and youngster Alfie Devine, took the game away from the non-league side.
