2019 ICC | Juventus 2-3 Tottenham

07-22-2019

Tottenham inflicted a 3-2 defeat on Juventus in an entertaining 2019 International Champions Cup meeting

The showdown in Singapore, which marked Maurizio Sarri’s unofficial debut as Juve’s new manager, was heading towards penalties, but in the final minute of stoppage time Harry Kane would produce a stunning piece of brilliance, lobbing Wojciech Szczęsny from the halfway line.

Following this performance there’s so much Sarri can extract from his new charges. As for Spurs, it was no surprise to see them more energetic given they’ve been in pre-season mode that little bit more longer than the Old Lady, as the Premier League begins 15 days earlier than Serie A.

Erik Lamela would give Mauricio Pochettino’s men a half-time lead before Gonzalo Higuaín and Cristiano Ronaldo struck in a four-minute spell to turn the game on its head. However, the goals didn’t quite dry up, Lucas Moura – hungry for a regular starting berth next season – equalized before Kane’s stunning finish.
