London (EFE) – Everton beat Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday in a crazy match decided by 5-4 in overtime that qualifies the ‘Toffees’ for the FA Cup quarterfinals.
The match was a whole goal carousel, in which Tottenham started winning, Everton turned around to 3-1 in the first half, the ‘Spurs’ managed to draw and Everton took the lead twice more to finish taking the duel in extra time.
They were promised very happy by José Mourinho’s when Colombian Davinson Sánchez put his team ahead with a header from a corner, but Everton quickly came back. In two minutes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin took advantage of a bad exit of the ball and a bad stop by Hugo Lloris to equalize and Richarlison made it 2-1 with a shot from the edge.
A penalty committed by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and converted by Gylfi Sigurdsson gave Carlo Ancelotti’s 3-1. Erik Lamela cut before the break and left the game alive for the second half.
Davinson reappeared from a corner to push a header from Hojbjerg and Tottenham regained the disadvantage. But the problems in defense of the ‘Spurs’ continued and a boarding of Richarlison, with a shot without angle, put the 4-3 to 20 minutes of the end.
He had to pull Mourinho from Harry Kane, substitute this Wednesday, to re-level the balance and the Englishman succeeded in 82 when he finished off a shipment from Heung-min Son.
With the match in extra time with a beautiful 4-4 on the scoreboard, Sigurdsson invented a pass from the front over the entire defense for Bernard to shoot Lloris.
It was so cold in Liverpool that Carlo Ancelotti did not even celebrate the goal and was dedicated to blowing the coffee to try minimally to warm up.
That last blow from Bernard was enough for Everton to reach the quarterfinals of the Cup competition and continue to have a chance of winning their first title since they took over the Community Shield in 1995.
