Newport knocked out of the FA Cup by Tottenham Hotspur

Newport knocked out of the FA Cup by Tottenham Hotspur

The teams played out a 1-1 draw in Wales a week-and-half-ago, with Spurs, and that man Harry Kane, leaving it late to avoid a colossal upset away to Flynn's men.

Amond's first experience of a big sporting occasion was at Croke Park, when he lined out for the Carlow minor hurlers in a Leinster final.

The League Two side are taking over 7,700 fans to the national stadium, which surpasses their record attendance at Rodney Parade.

Both teams made a series of changes to their line ups from last weekend's league fixtures.

The state of their pitch received a lot of negativity in the game against Millwall - it had to be heavily sanded to ensure the game would go ahead following poor weather. "To put a show on for ourselves and show how good we are", Amond told the Irish World.

"Hopefully for the end of this year but definitely next season".

Flynn, though, is likely to instruct his charges to play just as they did in the first leg and take the game to Tottenham, if they are to harbour giant killing hopes. "We are Tottenham and we must win".

"So they were staring into the abyss, the Dragons, if the shareholders hadn't have voted to accept the WRU ownership, the Dragons would have been no more and hopefully now we can see, this FA Cup run is going to give Newport County some good revenue to try to build".

The afternoon includes a panel presentation, Beechnut Steel Drum performance, music, poetry, spoken word and food. The Framingham Public Schools are celebrating the month with activities throughout the 28 days.

"I knew it was in the moment I headed it, and I was away celebrating already", said Amond, who admits that for the next 44 minutes he dreamed his goal would prove to be the victor.

"For me, it is the same whether it is Newport or another Premier League team".

"You're praying "please don't let anyone else score". His mentality is fantastic and he will improve. I'd just come off five minutes before it, so I was hoping we'd score a victor, but if we'd scored the victor I'd have been forgotten about completely!

And the game took on a similar pattern after the break, with Spurs testing Newport's resolve with an injection of pace while moving the ball swiftly around the lush Wembley surface.

"Look, he was magnificent for me. It was a special moment".

During that spell, Lamela will have more opportunities to continue his return to prominence after his best performance in more than a year, and Pochettino knows how crucial he can be.

But Mauricio Pochettino was vocal about how much they missed Lamela's guile and intensity while he was injured and, although this game was won as soon as he found the net, he did not stop snapping into challenges and harrying the Newport defence. Never caused me any problems and like I said, I wanted to keep him.
