The Tottenham is probably the team with the most embezzlement when challenging for the International Champions Cup. And it’s not why you’re not winning. So much so that on Tuesday night, the team beat Milan 1-0 and with seven points totaled in three games, took the lead of the friendly competition in the United States.

On the other hand, the Italians still do not win. In the last week, the team was defeated by Manchester United on penalties and now lost from Tottenham. The next confrontation of the team in the tournament is Barcelona, ​​next Saturday.

During the first stage, the game was quite truncated and almost had no chance of goal, much because of the highly modified lineups in the two teams. In Tottenham, for example, athletes like Amos, Marsh, Skipp and Georgiou, who have little chance in the team of Mauricio Pocchettino. The Brazilian Lucas Moura was another who won an opportunity

The first good chance of goal came in the 21st minute, when Milan’s Kessié ventured into the area. The ball, however, passed away from Vorm’s goal.

Four minutes later, Tottenham almost opened the scoring in a misconception of the Italian team’s close. Goalkeeper Reina came out playing with Locatelli, who, pressed, lost the ball to Amos, who kicked and the ball passed scraping the beam.

The return to the second half was much more lively and the first and only goal of the game came out in the first minutes. Frenchman Georges-Kévin N’Koudou, who returned to Tottenham after loaning to Burnley, loaded the ball and kicked the entrance of the area. It is the second goal of the end in the competition, since he also scored against Barcelona.

Milan even tried to go up, betting on athletes like Kalinic and Halilovic. But they were far from inspired.

The best chance was already in the final minutes. After crossing from the left and Croatian Kalinic, already with the opponent’s goalkeeper hit, did not reach cross and the ball went through the lateral line.
