Brennan Johnson reacts to late Spurs’ winner against Sheffield United
Brennan Johnson experienced a great moment in his Tottenham Hotspur debut. As the clock ticked down on a tense encounter against Sheffield United, the 22-year-old Welsh sensation found himself thrust into the spotlight.
Johnson didn’t quite know where to turn in the magic moments after Dejan Kulusevski struck our late, late winner against Sheffield United on Saturday.
“It was crazy,”
“I didn’t know who to run up to, to be honest. I saw Deki run off, Richy run off, I was caught in the moment, but those are the moments you dream of. To be involved in something like that in my first game only means there are good things to come.”
Snapped up from Forest on deadline day, Brennan came off the bench for his debut on 80 minutes – as it turned out, with 22 minutes remaining – with us dominating possession but chasing a 1-0 deficit against a stubborn Blades’ defence. The stage was set for the young prodigy to make his mark, and he didn’t disappoint.
It looked like he’d made the perfect start by equalising two minutes after his introduction, only for his goal to be ruled offside. The agonizing wait for his first Spurs goal would have to continue a little longer. However, Brennan Johnson’s impact was undeniable. His movement, skill, and confidence beyond his age, and he had the fans on the edge of their seats.
Late Magic at the N17
As the minutes ticked away, hope seemed to fade. The stubborn Sheffield United defence was holding firm, and the prospect of dropping points at home loomed large. But this Spurs team, under the guidance of Ange Postecoglou, doesn’t know the meaning of surrender.
In the 98th minute, Richarlison rose above the Blades’ defence to head home the equalizer, sending the crowd into raptures. The roar of the fans reverberated through the stadium, and suddenly, hope came through.
Then came the moment that will remain etched in Premier League history. In the 10th minute of injury time, Dejan Kulusevski unleashed a thunderous strike that found the back of the net.
The eruption of joy and relief was palpable, and Brennan Johnson was right in the thick of it. He may not have scored, but his presence and contribution were invaluable in turning the tide in Spurs’ favour.
