EUROPA LEAGUE

A much-changed Tottenham side endured a horror evening in Slovenia last night as they were embarrassed by NS Mura 2-1 to leave their hopes of making the Europa Conference League last 16 hanging by a thread.

Amadej Marosa’s injury-time goal sealed the result after Harry Kane looked to have salvaged a point for 10-man Spurs.

Kane chipped in after Tommy Horvat opened the scoring and Ryan Sessegnon’s red card reduced woeful Spurs’ numbers.

It means second place in Group G is the best Spurs can hope to achieve now with their last game.

The German Bundesliga side are just a point behind second placed Slavia Prague on seven points. Feyenoord are the runaway leaders on 11 points.
