Spurs Start Strong
To open International Champions Cup play Tottenham Hotspur matched up with AS Roma in San Diego at Qualcomm Stadium where they posted a 4-1 win. A pair of Tottenham Hotspur players each posted two goals. Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura were the scoring heroes in the win. What was most impressive about the win was that the Spurs were going with their second string as stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli were out. A total of nine senior players were out of the lineup and yet manager Mauricio Pochettino’s team didn’t miss a beat.
In their second ICC match Tottenham Hotspur met Barcelona at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and played them to an entertaining 2-2 draw which was subsequently settled in a Barcelona 5-3 win on penalty kicks. Barcelona took a 2-0 lead at halftime before the Spurs rallied on goals from Son Heung Min at the 73-minute mark followed by Georges Kevin N’Koudou’s equalizer at the 75-minute mark. While it was an impressive comeback that showed the heart of a champion the penalty defeat proved to ultimately be a disappointment.
AC Milan’s only International Champions Cup match was quite memorable for its marathon 26 penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw against Manchester United. United won the penalty session 9-8 which left all exhausted. Manchester United carried much of the play in the match and forced AC Milan to make nine saves.
AC Milan has simplified its approach with the arrival of new manager Gennaro Gattuso and will play with a simple 4-3-3 system. Gattuso got off to a great starting as AC Milan was undefeated in his first ten matches as coach. Previous manager Vincenzo Montella had a much more complicated system that had players feeling shackled. Gattuso is a former player for AC Milan and as such has the familiarity with its grand tradition of being one of Europe’s elite teams. AC Milan has won seven UEFA Champions League titles and 18 Serie A championships.
Tottenham Hotspur has emerged as exciting and young team that is highly entertaining to watch with its pressing style of play that forces turnovers and creates breakouts. Tottenham Hotspur has also developed into one of the most balanced clubs that can be found anywhere. The one star that dd make the trip to the ICC is the great Christian Eriksen, one of the truly superior playmakers in the world.
