AFC Wimbledon’s FA Cup run came to an end as they were defeated 3-0 by Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium on an historic day.

Despite a highly-disciplined performance in the first-half, Spurs and England striker Harry Kane scored twice on 63 and 65 minutes respectively.

Defender Jan Vertonghen had a deflected long-range strike beat shot-stopper George Long for the third on 71 minutes, but the Dons supporters were in full voice as they enjoyed their trip to English football’s largest capacity stadium.

Here are five things we learned…

1. AFC Wimbledon fans made it an enjoyable and entertaining atmosphere

More than 7,700 supporters made the trip up north of the River Thames to Wembley Stadium for the first-ever meeting between the two clubs since AFC Wimbledon's formation in 2002.

Their support looked to have inspired the team as they genuinely enjoyed spells of the game where Tottenham could not break them down.

When they had their longest spell of possession, fans cheered every pass they had – clearly they enjoyed the day, win or lose.

2. Neal Ardley’s men had chances themselves on some occasions

A lofted pass into the path of Lyle Taylor forced goalkeeper Michel Vorm to rush out and head the dangerous ball away.

Millwall loanee Nadjim Abdou threatened to nick a goal when his long-range effort ricocheted both off the crossbar and the goalkeeper in one of AFC Wimbledon’s best chances.

Had it not been for Vorm again, Jonathan Meades might have looped the ball into the net after a George Francomb indirect free-kick.

The scenes of a Wombles goal at Wembley would have been incredible.

3. AFC Wimbledon, for an hour, managed to deny Tottenham an easy victory

It took a system change and a couple substitutions for Spurs to enjoy some freedom against AFC Wimbledon, because otherwise they were made to look average.

Even with a team featuring some six fully-capped internationals in a relatively ‘weakened’ team, Pochettino’s men struggled to find avenues in which to exploit.

Perhaps it was down to opting for two forwards instead of Kane usually up on his own, but the introduction of Heung Min-Son and Dele Alli was only after the Dons’ back four and tight midfield three frustrated the home side repeatedly.

4. But the scoreline is about right, the hosts were too powerful

Perhaps it was only a matter of time before Spurs got their way but almost all the game was dominated by them.

Ardley admitted in the post-match conference that they came to sit deep and defend, given how much fitter and quicker their opponents were.

Pochettino’s side threatened all game with tantalising whipped crosses into the far post, defence-splitting passes where someone switched off at the wrong time, and long-range efforts which tested George Long.

As a consolation, it was not a men against boys performance and the Dons made them sweat a little.

5. Some players stood out, but no one really underperformed

It would be difficult to highlight one player who did not have a good outing.

Long made some excellent saves during the first-half that instilled confidence, and Deji Oshilaja did brilliantly to throw himself at the ball late in the second when Tottenham could have added to their tally.

With the Wembley trip now over, the main focus is now remains on League One and attempting to bring some players in during the January transfer window.
