Vicious struck again minutes later to double the visitors lead, Dele Alli providing pin-point assists for both goals.

Vinicius secured his hat-trick 5 minutes later with this delicate lob. The gulf of 161 places separating the two sides in the Leagues was apparent as Marine headed into the break 4-0 down and dejected, After the restart 16-year-old substitute Alfie Devine made Tottenham history - not just by playing the fixture, but at 16 years and 163 days, becoming the team's youngest-ever scorer.
