Tottenham bounced back to winning ways in the Champions League after a disappointing loss to Monaco on match-day 1. A tight match, with Spurs winning 1-0 against a resolute CSKA Moscow side in Russia.

The lone goal in the match came from the certified “man on fire” at the moment, Son Heung-Min.
The goal came in the 70th minute, after Mauricio Pochettino took off Vincent Janssen and replaced the Dutchman with new summer signing Georges N’Koudou.
The young Frenchman, signed from Marseille, had an instant impact, winning a corner which Lamela almost fired in. He was also seen covering quite a bit of the grass and at a blistering pace.
The winger consistently troubled the Moscow defense with his speed and in the process procured more space for his more creative teammates to thrive in. Check out the highlights below!

His performance certainly delighted Poch and most definitely the fans. Spurs have an abundance of talent for the future in their ranks and Georges N’Koudou could certainly be a big part of it if his performance last night is anything to go by.

George Kevin Nkoudou's pace will be a huge asset, coming on against tiring defences this season. Was impressed with his cameo.

Nkoudou is a fantastic dribbling talent…reminds me a little of Aaron Lennon. Promising!! #COYS

Considering Nkoudou was only on the pitch for about 20 minutes 4 take-ons is pretty impressive. https://t.co/8sUx8dpHQK
