Lokomotiv Plovdiv 1-2 Tottenham: Dramatic late turnaround prevents humiliating Spurs defeat

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho says he questioned Tanguy Ndombele's professionalism last season but still has faith in the France midfielder, who scored a late victor against Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Thursday's Europa League match.

A shock appeared on the cards when Georgi Minchev nodded Plovdiv ahead eighteen minutes from time.

But Jose Mourinho's men saved face with an impressive comeback as a Harry Kane penalty, after an incident which saw two Plovdiv players sent off, and Tanguy Ndombele's 85th-minute victor sent them through.

Spurs will now travel to North Macedonia for a one-off third qualifying round clash with Shkendija next Thursday.

Argentina worldwide midfielder Lo Celso started the match and played for the full 90 minutes. The north London club had only 19 minutes to turn things around or it could be a season with no European football.

In the nearby Cooper Canyon area, air tankers have been deployed to help contain a large spot fire north of Highway 2. The Bobcat fire , which started September 6, remains at 3% containment and has grown steadily in multiple directions.

Spurs' dominance continued into the second period, with a lovely move early on again producing a fine opportunity, but Son shot over from around six yards out after Ben Davies latched on to Kane's throughball.

Steven Bergwijn rattled the crossbar in the first half but Mourinho's side then had the rug pulled out from under their feet as they conceded from a set-play.

Plovdiv had two players sent off in the incident that led to Kane's penalty, as Dinis Almeida was given a straight red for handball before Birsent Karagaren was shown a second yellow for dissent.

Seven minutes later, Moura's low cross was bundled unconvincingly into the corner of the net via substitute Tanguy Ndombele's shin.
