Spurs put 6 past Inter Milan in excellent pre season performance in Norway:
This afternoon Spurs put in an exceptional performance in their final pre season match before the start of the season, with Pochettino’s side defeating Italian side Inter Milan 6-1. Spurs took the lead just five minutes in after a penalty was awarded following a foul on Kyle Walker in the penalty area, Harry Kane sent a thumping shot past the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 to the Lillywhites. However, Roberto Mancini’s side equalised on 24 minutes through Ivan Perisic, after the Croatian was picked out by Banega on the left wing before darting past Walker and firing inside Vorm’s near post to make it one all. Shortly before half time Mauricio Pochettino’s side regained the lead after Erik Lamela scored an absolutely sensational goal. The Argentine was picked out by Kane and with space Lamela curled a wonderful shot into the top hand corner of the net from 25 yards out leaving Handanovic helpless. We started the second half just as well as we had started the first and we were rewarded seven minutes in through Dele Alli who got Spurs’s third of the game. Dele Alli played a quick one two with Janssen in the box before tucking the ball with great precision and pace in to the bottom right hand corner of the net.
A mere five minutes later Harry Kane grabbed his second of the game to make it 4-1 to Spurs, Kane was found by Lamela before shifting the ball onto his right foot from just inside the area before hitting a wonderfully powerful finish which flew in to the back of the net. Janssen got his first goal for Spurs soon after, after the highly impressive Dutchman was played through in the area by Alli who had danced his way past Inter’s defence and a composed Janssen hit an accurate finish to make it five for Spurs. Our final goal of the game came through 19 year old Shayon Harrison who got his first goal for Spurs, after some great hold up play from Janssen the forward passed to Lamela who crossed in to Harrison from right before the youngster tapped home to make it Spurs 6-1 Inter Milan. We couldn’t have asked for a better performance ahead of next weeks opener against Everton our side was simply exceptional in every aspect, every player was extremely impressive. One thing is for certain we will be a better, stronger and more potent side ahead of the upcoming league season. COYS⚽️
