Bernard spends extra time establishing an exciting FA Cup tie
Tottenham are out of the FA Cup after Bernard’s overtime sent Everton into the quarter-finals with a 5-4 victory in a thrilling draw at Goodison Park.
Spurs were ahead early on, but a late goal from substitute Harry Kane was needed to earn a 4-4 draw, with both sides squandering the lead, before Bernard finally rectified the matter in the first extra time. .
Jose Mourinho left Kane on the bench and Gareth Bale is completely out of his group, but he saw his team take the lead within five minutes when Davinson Sanchez headed in from a corner.
However, the visitors exploded shortly before half-time and conceded three goals in seven minutes as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson all got the goal kick, the latter from the penalty spot after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s foul.
Just as the Toffees looked at the helm of affairs, Erik Lamela gave Spurs hope by pulling one back with a clever finish in the stoppage time of the first half, before Sanchez knocked back to the resume and popped in after Toby Alderweireld’s header was saved.
Richarlison restored the lead in a tight corner at 68 minutes, but Kane jumped off the bench to force extra time with a short header from close range, with just seven minutes off the 90 to play.
But it was Bernard who finally scored the decisive goal and clung on to Sigurdsson’s deft ball from behind to shoot over Hugo Lloris and in.
