Tottenham Hotspur

BBC pundit left baffled by what 22-year-old Tottenham player did against Bournemouth

Matt Jarvis admitted that he could not quite believe what Bryan Gil did during the final moments of Tottenham Hotspur’s clash with Bournemouth on Sunday.

To close off 2023, Spurs triumphed handily, with goals from Pape Matar Sarr, Heung-min Son, and Richarlison for Ange Postecoglou’s team.

And there’s no denying that Bryan Gil ought to have signed his name later on in the scoresheet. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg slid the ball across to the Spaniard, who was now a few yards out with an open goal to shoot at.

Matt Jarvis baffled by Bryan Gil miss in Tottenham win

Gil however, managed to head the ball onto the crossbar, and the chance slipped through his grasp. As the game continued, the 22-year-old just stayed down, clearly devastated by the miss.

And speaking on BBC Radio Five Live, Jarvis suggested that he was baffled as to how Gil managed to not put the ball into the back of the net.

“I’ve still got my hand over my mouth. How has he missed there? He’s on the goalline. It’s really good play from Son and Hojbjerg on that left-hand side. Son cuts inside. Everyone thinks he’s going to shoot. He puts a reverse pass back to his left-hand side where Hojbjerg is, who takes another touch basically on the goalline, cuts it back, and Gil, I don’t know how he’s missed. He’s on the goalline, he’s headed it up and it’s hit the bar,” he said.

“He’s a yard outside, but he’s in the middle of the goal and he’s arching back. I’m trying to help him out here. The ball from Hojbjerg is just to his left. He’s trying to head it, but he’s hit the bar. I don’t know how he’s missed.”
