Carlos Vinicius scored a first-half hat-trick as Tottenham avoided an FA Cup third-round upset after easing past non-League Marine 5-0.

The Premier League side, sitting 160 places above their hosts in the football pyramid – the biggest such gap in the competition’s history – were given an early scare when Neil Kengni rattled the bar from distance.

Thereafter, though, it was all Spurs, with Vinicius opening the scoring midway through the first half with a simple tap in, before doubling his team’s lead with another close-range finish on the half-hour mark.

Two minutes later, Lucas Moura’s curling free-kick made it 3-0 to Spurs and Vinicius completed his hat-trick with a delightful lob eight minutes before half-time.

Sixteen-year-old substitute Alfie Devine completed the scoring with a low drive on the hour-mark as Jose Mourinho’s side cruised into Sunday night’s draw for the fourth and fifth rounds.
