Roberto Soldado hopes Tottenham can find some confidence ahead of trip to Florence next week
Roberto Soldado has reflected on Tottenham Hotspur’s ‘bad’ first-leg result after a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina at White Hart Lane in the Europa League.
The Spain international handed the north London side an early lead on Thursday night after the 29-year-old volleyed past Romanian goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu in the sixth minute.
However, Spurs squandered their slender lead and conceded what could prove to be a vital away goal after Argentina centre-back Jose Maria Basanta bundled a 36th-minute effort past Hugo Lloris.
Soldado, who started the last-32 first-leg tie ahead of Harry Kane, took to Instagram to reflect on a disappointing draw with the Serie A side on Friday morning.
“Bad result yesterday. But we have 90m more.Confidence!!! COYS,” Soldado wrote.
Soldado has scored four goals and has made one assist in 22 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season.
The Spain striker has endured a tough start to his Spurs career following his £27.5m move to White Hart Lane from La Liga outfit Valencia in 2013.
