Spurs Win International Champions Cup

It has now been confirmed that the International Champions Cup winners 2018 are Tottenham Hotspur.

Our youngsters did us proud in the prestigious pre-season tournament held in America and once again our participation and indeed our victory, helps us raise our international profile and our profile in the States.

We thrashed Roma 4-1 after going a goal behind thanks to two strikes by Fernando Llorente and two by Lucas Moura.

Tottenham: Vorm, Aurier, Carter-Vickers, Davies, Walker-Peters, Sissoko, Amos, Lucas, Eriksen, Lamela, Llorente.

We then moved on to play Barcelona, who we drew 2-2 with but lost on penalties, a loss which gave us 1 point. We came from 2-0 down to level with two goals in two minutes from Son and N'Koudou in front of a 66,805 crowd.

Tottenham: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Carter-Vickers, Davies, Walker-Peters, Amos, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Son, Llorente.

Subs: Subs: Sanchez, Vorm, N'Koudou, Georgiou, Skipp.

Man of the match: Christian Eriksen

We then beat AC Milan 1-0 with a goal from Georges-Kevin N'Koudou in front of 31,264 spectators to give ourselves 7 points overall.

Tottenham: Vorm, Walker-Peters, Sanchez, Eyoma, Georgiou, Skipp, Marsh, Amos, Moura, Nkoudou, Llorente.

Subs used: Gazzaniga, Eriksen, Son, Aurier, Davies, Carter-Vickers.

Those 7 points were enough to see us top the table and win the tournament on goal difference to join the previous winners Real Madrid, Manchester United, PSG (twice) and Barcelona. Exhalted company indeed and a sign of our growing status.

As pre-season fitness, it was excellent, for giving some youngsters the experience of playing against some big names in front of crowds they don't see it was a tremendous exercise and for raising our worldwide profile it was a success too.

ICC pre-season offer, 4 Youngsters Tipped For The Top, Inter Milan want Sandro, Spurs not doing badly

International Champions Trophy, 4 Youngsters Tipped For The Top, Inter Milan want Sandro, Italy boss, Some Fans Need To Get A Grip



Tottenham have been invited, once again, to take part in the International Champions Trophy. Our performances in the UEFA Champions League  where we beat Real Madrid, beat Borussia Dortmund and drew away to Juventus continue to help raise our profile and pre-season tournaments like this, again do likewise.

Mauricio Pochettino will of course be consulted on the best way to prepare for the new season while understanding financial considerations and marketing the Tottenham brand worldwide to increase the future fanbase, also has a bearing on any decisions.


The Daily Mirror have produced a piece about six youngsters to watch and four of them are Tottenham players, mind you their picture of 6 players has 7 in it!

  • Sashon Aird-Munn, 15, Tottenham, forward
  • Zanda Siziba, 14, Tottenham, winger
  • Max Robson, 15, Tottenham, midfielder
  • Marqes Murr, 15, Tottenham, centre-back


Inter Milan are weighing up summer bid for 28-year-old (29 in March) former Tottenham Hotspur fan favourite, defensive midfielder Sandro, according to Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

The Brazilian plays for fellow Italian side Benevento, who he joined in January on loan from Turkish side Antalyaspor. He is under contract until 2020 (although Transfermarkt suggest his contract ends this summer) and Benevento have a purchase option on him at the end of the season. So far he has played 5 games in Serie A, scoring 1 goal.

Inter Milan have to be very wary of their Financial Fair Play situation and are looking round at cheap options. That would rather rule out a move for Erik Lamela, a player they have been linked with every window for 3 years now.


Chelsea could be losing their manager this summer even if he isn't sacked. Alessandro Costacurta has been appointed as a sub-commissioner of the Italian FA to aid their search for a new boss

"We will appoint the new Italy coach by June. Conte, Mancini or Di Biagio? These are the names, it won't be anyone else," report AS in Spain.

In the UK he is qioted as having told Gazzetta dello Sport; “I've not decided yet, but I think that the person who could do the best job would be Conte.

“I'll definitely speak to him in a few months' time. Conte has already shown that he knows how to be Italy coach, as we saw at the European Championships, whereas the others haven't.”
