From Sao Paulo to Spotland.
Lucas Moura started his first game for Spurs against Rochdale in the FA Cup, following his January move from PSG.
There was plenty of chat about dealing with the ‘new Neymar’ tag, the culture shock of Rotherham and whether or not he was the Brazilian Theo Walcott.
But Spurs fans didn’t need to worry.
After less than ten minutes it became pretty clear that Moura was a class above, despite his team-mates doing their best to drag him down.
Even with Rochdale going in 1-0 up Moura impressed.
Then, in the 59th minute, the Moura hype train went into overdrive.
The 36-cap Brazil international received a pass from Moussa Sissoko and slotted past goalkeeper Josh Lillis.
What a place to get your first Spurs goal.
Thirteen minutes after scoring and with the heavy pitch taking its toll Moura was withdrawn for Dele Alli.
But Spurs fans had seen enough to feel very smug about the £25million fee it took to bring the Brazilian to north London.
So Moura gets his first start on the same ground Harry Kane made his Football League debut on.
