Tottenham have begun their pre-season with a 3-2 victory against League One outfit Brentford.
The game took place “behind closed doors” at the Tottenham training ground and is the second year in a row which we have faced the Bees in the build up to the new season.
French midfielder Nabil Bentaleb featured during the first half and it wasn’t any surprise to hear that Gareth Bale was once again on the score sheet, however the visitors battled back to take a 2-1 advantage into the break.
AVB changed all eleven players for the second half and it’s great to see that Younes Kaboul featured in the friendly alongside Jan Vertonghen, especially as many expect the pair to be our first-choice central defensive partnership.
Jermain Defoe had his goalscoring boots on and scored both goals in the second half to give us a 3-2 win against Uwe Rosler’s side.
Spurs 1st half team: Friedel, Naughton, Dawson, Caulker, Rose; Mason, Huddlestone, Bentaleb; Lennon, Bale, Obika
Spurs 2nd half team: Archer, Smith, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Stewart; Parker, Carroll, Sigurdsson; Townsend, Defoe, Ceballos
