After Tottenham secured a dramatic 2-1 victory against Liverpool, Cristian Romero engaged in some playful banter with his Argentine compatriot, Alexis Mac Allister.
The match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium featured late-game heroics as Son Heung-min and an own goal by Joel Matip sealed a hard-fought win for Tottenham.
This thrilling contest showcased two resurgent teams, both unbeaten in the new Premier League season after bouncing back from challenging campaigns in the previous term.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side had come tantalizingly close to leaving north London with a valuable point, with Cody Gakpo canceling out Son Heung-min’s opener.
However, Liverpool’s task became even more difficult when they had two players, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota, sent off during the match.
In the dying moments of added time, Tottenham’s persistence paid off, as Matip inadvertently directed Pedro Porro’s cross into his own net, prompting jubilant celebrations among the Spurs faithful.
The match’s aftermath was marked by controversy, with the Professional Game Match Officials Limited admitting to a “significant human error” that incorrectly ruled out Luis Diaz’s opening goal for Liverpool.
Following the intense encounter, Cristian Romero took to his Instagram page to celebrate Tottenham’s victory. In response to Romero’s post, his Argentine teammate, who played for Liverpool in the match, quipped, “Normal when you play with 12.” In a light-hearted retort, Romero advised him to “Cry at home.”
This exchange adds a touch of humor to the post-match analysis, reminding fans that even in fierce competition, there’s room for camaraderie and banter among players, especially when they share national ties.
