As Tottenham sailed past non-league Navy in a 5-0 FA Cup third-round rout, Carlos Vinicius netted a first-half hat-trick.

After Lucas Moura’s top-quality free-kick, the Brazilian scored a brace from a total range of about three yards and added a sumptuous third.

At half-time, Alfie Devine was added to become Tottenham’s youngest player ever and the teenager made a rapid impact at 16 years and 163 days to drill home the fifth on the hour.

That finished the scoring against top-flight opponents at Rossett Park as eighth-tier Marine, who are 161 places below Spurs in the English league pyramid, eventually succumbed.

Neil Kengni disrupted the early ball hegemony of Spurs to smash a 35-yard dipping shot off the crossbar, but Dele Alli teed up Vinicius after surviving the heart-in-mouth moment to jink past Bayleigh Passant and finish on the goal line.

After Matt Doherty’s side-foot volley was deflected into his direction from Alli’s cross-field dink, Vinicius tapped in again on the rebound, and Lucas soon made it three with a superbly executed free-kick.

Eventually, more good work from Alli led Vinicius to loop beautifully home into the left side of the goal to complete his hat-trick.

Jose Mourinho recruited Devine for the second period with the game secured and he flashed a furious shot past Passant at the near post on the hour mark from Lucas’ pass.
