Vinicius' first-half hat-trick sets Spurs up for 5-0 win over eighth-tier side

Powered by automated translation

Brazilian Carlos Vinicius struck a first-half hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur avoided an FA Cup banana skin with ease, enjoying a 5-0 win at eighth-tier Marine AFC in the third round.

Marine, who play in the Northern Premier League, Division One North West, lay 161 places below Spurs in the English football pyramid - the biggest gap that the FA Cup has produced.

The Merseyside club nearly gave Spurs a shock in the 20th minute when Neil Kengni struck the bar with a long-range effort which former England keeper Joe Hart opted to let go only for the ball to dip late and strike the woodwork.

But two close-range finishes settled Spurs nerves and the game was over by half-time after Lucas Moura curled in a free kick for the third before Vinicius completed his hat-trick in the 37th minute.

Alfie Devine, who became Spurs' youngest player at 16-years and 163 days old, came on as a substitute at the break and scored on the hour with a well-taken strike that zipped in the near post.
