Foyth: ‘We still have faith’

Juan Foyth insists it’s a case of ‘as you were’ after emerging back into the fold during Tuesday night’s Champions League win over Crvena zvezda.
The 21-year-old defender came on for Jan Vertonghen in the second half of our much-needed 5-0 triumph to mark his first appearance of the season for the Club, having been sidelined with an ankle injury sustained in pre-season.
He did feature for Argentina during the international break earlier this month, starting twice at right-back as his side drew 2-2 with Germany and then thrashed Ecuador 6-1.
But after enjoying his first taste of Spurs action alongside some of his fellow countrymen – we finished the game with four Argentine internationals on the pitch for the first time in Juan, Paulo Gazzaniga, Erik Lamela and the returning Giovani Lo Celso – he emphasised how he’s determined to do what he can as we look to string together a positive run of results.
“Of course, it’s my first appearance of the season and I’m happy to play – it’s always nice to touch the ball and be involved,” he said.
“The lads did a fantastic job, we controlled the game and we deserved the win so it was a good game to have my first minutes of the season. Of course, it helped me a lot playing for Argentina too. I’m very grateful for the chance as it’s always nice to play – and for your country as well, it’s something special.
“Now we hope to continue building results (with the Club). I think the team is the same as last week, it’s just games. We can improve all the things we need to because we have a lot of faith in this group. We are all going to continue to give everything.”
