On this day, Rennes took the lead with Amin Guiri’s first goal in the first minute. But it collapsed in the second half. Ren gave up an equalizer in the 14th minute of the second half, and even gave up a reverse goal with 5 minutes left in regular time. He conceded one more goal in extra time in the second half and eventually knelt down 1-3.
Regardless of the match result, there was a welcome face. Spence, who left on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, was named on the starting list. Spence played an active role until the 39th minute of the second half and made his Rennes debut. Spence was compliant, recording 1 shooting block, 1 interception, 3 tackles, 86.2% pass accuracy, 10 duels (6 successful), 1 foul, 5 dribble attempts (2 successful), etc. showed
Spence is a player who can digest the right wingback position of the English nationality. Growing up at Fulham youth, he made his professional debut at Middlesbrough in 2018. Despite being only 19 years old at the time, he developed into his first start and established himself as a key player on the right side of Middlesbrough. His last season was on loan at Nottingham Forest, where he helped the club win promotion.
Tottenham sent a love call to these performances. However, after transferring to Tottenham, he could not play properly. Spence has played in four games so far, all of which were last-minute substitutes in the second half. According to the soccer statistics media ‘TransferMarkt’, Spence’s league appearance this season is only 5 minutes.
In other words, it is highly likely that Rennes’ debut match was a very meaningful match for Spence himself. This is because Spence was a starting opportunity eight months after the final against Huddersfield Town in the English Football League Championship (EFL Championship, 2nd division) promotion playoff final in May last year.
In the opportunity to participate after a long time, Spence captured the attention of Ren fans by showing a compliant appearance. The UK’s ‘Evening Standard’ revealed a fan reaction, saying, “Ren’s fans were deeply impressed.” One fan applauded, saying, “It’s so talented, it’s a beautiful find.” Another gave a thumbs-up, saying, “Why did Tottenham lend it? They’re crazy.”
