AC Milan manager feels International Champions Cup fans enjoyed matches

Pochettino's side have beaten Roma 4-1 and drawn 2-2 with Barcelona - a match they then lost on penalties - despite missing most of their first-choice XI due to World Cup exploits.

Tottenham spent last season with Wembley as their home ground, and they will now have to get used to another stadium as they prepare to begin play in their brand-new stadium in Haringey in September.

French winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou gave Tottenham a 1-0 win over AC Milan in their final U.S. tour game.

"Playing for the glory and trying to help the team to try to win".

Davinson Sanchez believes that he can put his experiences at the World Cup to good use in helping Tottenham challenge for the Premier League title once more this season.

Asked specifically whether he would have any issue with starting 21-year-old Luke Amos, given Spurs' problems in central midfield, Pochettino replied: "After four years, in my fifth year, you think I'm going to be scared to play him?".

'First we need to assess them on Monday and see what happens.


"I'll always say that a full-back is there to be part of the defence first and foremost, but if you can chip in at the other end with the odd one here and there it's definitely a valuable asset to have". "Who knows, the crossover between local supported success and the worldwide global game, you can see it right there behind us", said Watson, looking at the crowds at the Fan Fest outside the stadium.

"If you look at the number of players we had at the World Cup and showing who they are as players, it's been a very successful thing".

"All of the young players have really shown great character", he said.

'Be sure they feel very proud after this tour.

"Football is about energy, about desire, about respect for yourself and your team-mates, being professional".

Such performances could see some of those youngsters handed an opportunity in the early weeks of the new season - with Luke Amos one heavily-mentioned contender for a place in the squad. I am more than courageous'.

The Tottenham stars kicked field goals, with three players making their attempts. "I feel like I have done well and enjoyed it".
