These young Tottenham Hotspur fans reacted with dismay to Kieran Trippier’s penalty miss during Sunday’s 2-0 FA Cup 4th round defeat at Crystal Palace.
Roy Hodgson’s Eagles raced into a two-goal lead at Selhurst Park thanks to Connor Wickham’s 9th minute opener and Andros Townsend’s spot kick after the half-hour mark.
That girl in the crowd's reaction to Trippier's penalty miss was absolutely excellent. The magic of the FA Cup right there.

Trippier then had the opportunity to pull one back on the stroke of half-time after Patrick van Aanholt fouled Juan Foyth in the area.
He blazed wide from twelve yards, prompting a despairing reaction from two young Spurs supporters that was caught on camera.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have now exited both domestic cup competitions in the space of four days following Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg defeat to Chelsea.
Penalties were also their downfall on that occasion, with Lucas Moura and Eric Dier missing in a 4-2 penalty shoot-out defeat at Stamford Bridge.
Remember the summer? 30 degree heat waves, people dancing in the streets, Kieran Trippier was considered a professional footballer. How times change.
